A successful racehorse, Bantling Boy, has been left to a syndicate of four people in the will of its owner, Hartley of Bantling Hall: his son Bruce Hartley, his doctor John Osgood, his nurse Joanna Craxton, and his former gardener Trevor Machin. When local businessman Sam Tate offers them £500,000 for the horse, Bruce Hartley stops them selling it; later that night he is found dead. Then, one-by-one, the others die in almost identical attacks, and the horse sickens. Barnaby dismisses the idea that it is groom Jake Foley, even though he has been accused of horse-doping in the past, and concentrates his inquiries on the inhabitants of Bantling Hall.

In "Bantling Boy" we are asked to believe that a 9-year old boy is knowingly plotting with a man clearly in his sixties to kill people, like a video game, even his own mother. He is being encouraged by this paternal grandmother. Preposterous! I personally object to making children into murderers on any level. But the producers of Midsomer Murders have no issue with slamming anybody with religious values. None of their characters, outside of the police, are the type of people you would want to associate with. But the acting is good, Jane Wymark as pretty as ever.
