Mirza: Set for a prep race before the Ayr Gold Cup

Sky Bet

Rae Guest is considering handing Mirza a preparatory outing ahead of his tilt at the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup on September 22.

The Newmarket handler gave the five-year-old sprinter a break after having seven races from April to mid July.

Mirza is now being prepared for the feature of the Western Meeting at the Scottish track.

"He's had a little break and he's back in work now. He might have one more run before the Ayr Gold Cup. That's his main plan," said Guest.

"With 9st 4lb, at least he gets in the race, that's the main thing with these big handicaps.

"I haven't got a specific prep race in mind. It will be ground dependent he wants a bit of cut in the ground. If the right ground is there and the race is right, he'll have a run before."
