Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Backer

Backer: noun - a supporter, especially someone who places a bet; someone who provides financial backing.

'Who's your backer for the play, Frances?' 'Oh, it's that marvellous tycoon with more money than sense; you know who I mean.'

'Zak is the most consistent backer of dud horses I've ever come across; hasn't won a bet for fifteen years.'

Pic: Wandering way; a rural scene from East Yorkshire.
