Great to see Racquet get his head in front for the Reach For The Moon lads sadly none on course to celebrate in person! A great ride from Jimmy, pinging the gates, snatching the lead but keeping a bit up his sleeve to get home in the very soft conditions.
"The faster of the two divisions by 0.21sec. RACQUET was fast away and, in a race in which few got involved, he dug in well after being headed and finished nicely on top. He'd dropped to a mark 6lb lower than for his last win and had clearly benefited from his reappearance at Thirsk."
Racing Post, 2018
"Racquet has come on for his reappearance and the in-between trip is ideal for him. He's consistent, straightforward and has handled the ground."
