An all-star cast brings P.G. Wodehouse's supremely funny 1950s horse-racing novel to galloping life. Jeeves, on loan to young Lord Rowcester (Bill), devises a plan to assist his impoverished new master sell his crumbling pile to a wealthy American widow. But will she buy it?

There's also White Hunter Captain Biggar on the trail of a bookie and his clerk who conned him at Epsom races. Who are they? Could they in fact be Bill and Jeeves? Will the captain unmask them? Will Jeeves and his gigantic fish-fed brain win the day?

Finally our impeccable 'gentleman's personal gentleman' has a solution to dazzle and amaze us all.
