He wants to buy her a diamond pendant but calculates it will take him over one hundred years to save up for it. He is talked into betting a pound on a six horse accumulator at the Goodwood races with a slightly shady bookmaker. When he has won on the first five races, the bookie owes him over sixteen thousand pounds sterling and everyone begins to worry. Everyone's future depends on a single race. What can be done?
