n.— «I confess I had never heard of a dodgepot before. It’s a portmanteau word combining dodgy and hotpot, and means a talking horse—another term in the lexicon—which should be avoided by punters at all costs. I’ve backed enough of them to know that a dodgepot is all too common these days.» —“Cracking reads and not a dodgepot among them” by Martin Hannan Scotland on Sunday Oct. 9, 2005.
