Lord Brancaster loses his memory after an automobile accident and is cared for by Lord Beverly, outside of whose estate his car has wrecked. Brancaster falls in love with Beverly's daughter, Diana, and they become engaged, planning the formal announcement for the hunt ball. Iris d'Aquila (to whom Brancaster had been engaged before finding out she loved him for his title alone) learns of his amnesia and forges a certificate of marriage with the help of Sartoris, presenting herself at the hunt ball as Lady Brancaster. Diana's horse, The Whip, is to run at Ascot, and Sartoris, having heavily bet on another horse and fearing The Whip might win, attempts to kill him. Brancaster saves the horse, however, which goes on to win the Ascot. Iris' deception comes to light, and Brancaster (his title and fortune restored) prepares to marry Diana.
