The story of trainer Henry Cecil is one of the great redemption songs of sporting history - decades of success at the highest level followed by years in the professional and personal depths then a glorious resurrection topped by the unbeatable Frankel, widely considered the greatest racehorse of all time.

The Henry Cecil story is an emotional rollercoaster. Stand by for an exhilarating ride.

"Sir Henry Cecil has been a brilliant trainer of racehorses, a charismatic and complex man. Brough Scott's achievement has been to explain Cecil's genius and charisma without shying away from the more complex issues. The result is a wonderfully rounded portrait of one of the most endearing figures in British sport." David Walsh, chief sports correspondent of the Sunday Times
