Go Mighty Shiraz was ultra impressive at his Western Australian debut last week and has strong claims of going back-to-back in the raptinracing.com Juvenile Stake (530m) at Cannington tonight.
Go Mighty Shiraz, a winner of ten races from 28 starts, dashed out of the pink box and led all-the-way to defeat Hallpack Jimmy in a time of 30.40sec.
The Bombastic Shiraz greyhound will once again jump from box eight and despite confronting a tougher field he rates highly and appears to be very hard to beat.
Consecutive wins to Go Mighty Shiraz will be a major confidence boost as he prepares to tackle heats of the WA Derby on Saturday.
Rival trainer Darren Rowe had a firsthand look at Go Might Shiraz and was suitably impressed by what he saw.
Rowe’s young greyhound King Trotta, who has one win from his first three starts, ran fifth to the former New South Wales chaser.
Rowe believes King Trotta, to jump from the white box, will be improved but is likely to running for second.
"We are better suited in three after finding trouble from the six last week," Rowe said.
"He should just tuck in behind the speed but if Go Mighty Shiraz is on the bunny we are racing for the minor placings.
"My dog is still young and learning what it is all about and I think in a couple of more starts we will see further improvement.
"He is also heading towards the WA Derby in a fortnight."
