"A sloshy track means the dogs will slide, so you best bet is the designated wide.." A lowlife foray into the downbeat world of dog track tipster and greyhound philosopher Terry Childs. With a typically understated sense of humour, Bourne, who plays Childs in the tape, delivers a queasy narrative which expertly mixes the tragi-comic with insights into the strange world of "the dogs".
