Jamie Lynch's weekend review: Wrap Queen's Epsom Derby hope Reach For The Moon in cotton wool after Sandown win

Her Majesty The Queen’s Reach For The Moon followed up Newbury success to land Group Three Solario Stakes at Sandown on Saturday; John and Thady Gosden-trainer two-year-old an 11-1 shot for Classic next June

Sky Sports Racing’s senior analyst Jamie Lynch believes Reach For The Moon has emerged as the sport’s “most prized possession” ahead of a potential shot at the Epsom Derby next year on the weekend his owner Her Majesty The Queen is set to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee.

The John and Thady Gosden-trained two-year-old is already as short as 11-1 (Sky Bet) for June’s Classic after an impressive victory in the Group Three Solario Stakes at Sandown on Saturday.

The Queen’s runner was denied a Royal victory in the Chesham Stakes at Ascot in June this year, finishing half a length down in second to Aidan O’Brien’s Point Lonsdale – also a winner last weekend in the Group Two Futurity Stakes.
