Withdrew when Jimmy met up with Heath. The answer is retracted but I can't work out why. I guess a tract is a heath but I still haven't been able to put the whole word together.

This also leads to the answer:

Jimmy RETRAC< + TED Heath → RETRACTED (up as a reversal if a down clue)

I think it’s

{Definition:} Withdrew when Jimmy {Potentially Jimmy Reed clueing REED} met up with Heath {a heath is a TRACT of land as you’ve mentioned}.

So you get

TRACT in RE_____ED yielding RETRACTED, with definition WITHDREW.

    $\begingroup$ I'm sure this answer is correct, but... eew. What kind of way to indicate an insertion is that?? $\endgroup$ – Rubio Aug 11 at 4:14
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, “met up with” is a really bad one..... I mean, I suppose it could also be an anagram indicator, but it’s still not the best haha $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 11 at 4:28
