Title or Caption"Four for the Flat. 'Gunboat Diplomacy by Gun-Happy Harold out of Caribbean Caper. Blood Money by Ruthless Ray out of Tearful Taxpayer. Union Blues by Bouncing Barbara out of Income Policy. Brown Huff by Georgie Boy out of Mustapha Handshake.'"
Published captions written under each picture from left:- "Feerless long stayer; excessive criticism does not prevent him putting his worst foot forward. Regarding Gunboats' forthcoming committments, chief stable lad Stewart was sworn to silence." "In spite of smooth appearance is apt to lash out mercilessly at petrified punters. Should be front runner in Budget Stakes. Can't lose - but not fancied. Blinkered." "Made made showing in Dagenham Nursery Stakes, one of the longest cross country races in history. carrying a purse of a few pounds with #40 million added. Neighs prettily." "After being restricted to grass for some months, this gay little horse has made a welcome return to the form book. Should liven up many a bogged-down dinner with tales of his classic performances."
