The Weekends Racing – by The Sportsman Racing

It’s worth splitting stakes in The Blue Square Bet Sprint Series handicap at 2.00 on Peter Crate’s Picansort and the quirky Gabrial’s Gift from the Ian Williams stable. Picansort ended a two-year losing streak when bolting up at Lingfield over 5f only a few days ago and is capable of proving that good things come in twos with a follow up success over the extra furlong. In opposition, Gabrial’s Gift is in rude health presently, testified by his win last month over the same course and distance. That win was followed up with third place at Wolverhampton and he can go close again off his current mark. Chris Dwyer’s charge Mia’s Boy is engaged in the 0-100 handicap over a mile in the 3.10. The nine-year old plundered over £118,000 worth of prize money on the turf, the highlight being a Listed win in the Hambleton Stakes four summers ago. Three wins in thirty-nine contests since, illustrate that Mia’s Boy is far from prolific but those statistics have brought him down to a fighting weight. The nine-year old needs a strong pace which hopefully Verse Of Love or Grey Mirage can provide and you can be sure our selection will be running on at the business end of the race.]]>
