FOUR Tasmanians are preparing to compete in Australia's oldest and richest professional sprinting meet, the Stawell Gift, over the Easter weekend.

Over 700 runners are expected to converge on Central Park, Stawell, in the Grampian Mountains, Victoria, between April 6-9, with Andrew Robinson, Michelle Davis, Kimberley Bousch and Luke Whitney featuring as Tasmania's representatives.

Robinson, Bousch and Whitney will compete in the 70m, 120m and 400m sprints, while Davis will try her luck in the tougher longer-distance 400m and 800m.

Launceston's Robinson, 19, will race in his third consecutive Gift, after his excellent form in the 100m and 200m in the intra-club meet at the Domain earlier this month.

Trainer Ray Quarrell is confident of a good showing from the Tasmanian contingent.

"The four are in pretty good form at the moment and have claimed over $20,000 in prize money across races in Victoria and Tassie in recent months," he said.

"The Gift is a prestigious race and is one of the toughest sprinting competitions in Australia."
