The Bioscope described the film at the time as "probably the most exciting British racing film yet produced".[2] In a slightly later review they said "The story is not complicated with the usual thrilling adventures, but nor has it the simplicity of Campbell Rae Brown's famous recitation; while many of the details are even less convincing than in the average turf drama. It is only in the technique of the racing scenes that there is any exceptional skill".[3]
