Coronation Street Wiki


Derek uses a camcorder to record the transformation of the allotment. Roy takes charge as the menfolk - Jack, Bill, Fred, Martin, Alf, Gary and Billy set off to the races. Andy hopes to persuade Anne to stay the night at No.6 as Des is away for a few days. Roy refuses to drink with the others and spends his time working out a formula to win on the horses. He fancies betting on "Betty's Hot Shot". The others join him as they like the name. Maureen keeps breaking down at the shop. Liz gets recalled by The Hour Glass as the manager is no good. She is given the job. "Betty's Hot Shot" wins at 50-1, giving the men £250 each. Jack suggests they invest their winnings by buying the horse as it's a selling handicap. The trainer, Hilary Forrest tells them the horse has tons of potential. Roy pulls out of buying the horse but the others go for it. Jack bids on their behalf, unsure about what he's doing. Egged on by Maud, Maureen tells the customers about Reg leaving her. The men buy the horse for 2,600 guineas, costing their winnings plus £90 each. Hilary agrees to keep training him. Anne and Andy fall out when she takes Liz's side against violent Jim. She refuses to have dinner with him and goes home. The men are horrified when Roy tells them it costs £10,000 a year to keep a racehorse.
