Outside Bet, DVD


Sacha Bennett directs this British comedy, set in the 1980s, about a group of London friends who invest in a racehorse.

While sitting in their local one afternoon, Bax (Calum MacNab), his father Threads (Philip Davis), Mickey (Jason Maza), Sam The Soleman (Adam Deacon), Alfie (Dudley Sutton) and Smudge (Bob Hoskins) are offered the chance to buy a racehorse by an eccentric stranger.

With his future employment in Fleet Street under threat by events at Wapping and discovering his father has terminal cancer, print worker Bax convinces the others to form a syndicate to buy the horse.

But after renaming their acquisition 'The Mumper', events quickly run away from the friends as they find themselves at the racetrack placing all their hard-earned savings 'on the nose' to win.
