Following a successful day at the races, Major Hill is able to pay off his debts. Being a horse-lover, living in the London suburbs of Lamb's Green, he decides to buy a certain racehouse. With the help of Hill's daughter, Susan, Bill, a bus-driver, Pam, his romantic conductress and Maggie, who runs a milk bar, the money is raised, helped by a large last-minute subscription from gouty Sir Robert Medleigh. But by mistake the wrong horse is bought, and not a very good horse at that. When he proves useless on the flat, the syndicate vote to train him themselves as a jumper on the local Common and under the new name "The Galloping Major." Undeterred by setbacks, they persevere, and following success in some minor races they decide to run him in the Grand National. Excitement mounts feverishly as the big day approaches, but only thirty-six hourse before the race the horse mysteriously disappears. All is confusion until it is discovered that he has strayed into a film studio and has been sent on location to Chester. The owners race north by the bus-load to find him and rush him to the course. But the engaged jockey has withdrawn and the considerably overweight Hill has to ride. The extra load is his salvation, for it keeps him so far behind the other runners that when one by one they all fall, he is able wearily to drag himself past the winning-post
