Episode Chronology:

The Wrong Horse is the 1395th episode of The Bill

George and Vicky volunteer to protect a jockey due to give evidence against a crooked bookmaker. On offer is a weekend away at the races and a stay in a posh country hotel. While Garfield decides to eye up some of the local totty, Hagen finds herself as the unwilling victim of the jockey's romantic attentions. During the race, the rank outsider manages to come from the back and secure victory, much to Garfield's delight as it nets him £400. However, Hagen is suspicious, and that night at the hotel, she finds the jockey in the company of the man he is trying to prosecute, with a large amount of money changing hands. While Garfield seduces a friend of the local trainer, Hagen confronts the jockey.
