A great response from Gavin Mitchell on Friday at Welwyn, where he was on fire, winning the `B` Block Handicap for the second consecutive week,  2nd place in the "Devil" followed, then 4th position in the Block Pursuit. The evening was nicely rounded off with his pockets bulging to the tune of £5, which he collected by taking a prime in the 10 Mile Race.

Well Done Gavin
