Garth Rockett once again put his best foot forward and recorded the seventh win of his career at Lingfield yesterday. Given a fine ride by jockey, Daniel Muscutt, he stayed close to the pace and when turning for home set about Garth who responded gamely to win the race by a length and a half.
Yesterday was his first win at 6 furlongs as all of his previous winners and been over a trip which was a furlong longer. However, Garth and been showing a lot of speed at home and we felt it was worth dropping him back in trip once again which duly paid dividends.
We are delighted for his owner, Phil Banfield, who although not able to be there was able to watch the race live. The Rockett is a real trier and takes a fair old grip on the gallops but we love having him in the yard.
