An equine vet's career is in jeopardy as he faces a disciplinary hearing for serious professional misconduct. Will his barrister Rebecca Nyman, played by Claire Rushbrook, be able to mount a credible defence? Gunnar Cauthery stars as the vet Falco Hermans.
Tilting The Odds is set at a Fitness to Practice hearing at the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Falco Hermans is a vet in his thirties. Since qualifying he's built up a successful and lucrative practice as an equine vet in the racing town of Newmarket. He's got a big mortgage and three small children. He's facing a disciplinary hearing on several counts of misconduct. If he is struck off he faces financial ruin and disgrace in the racing community and in his home town.
