Ray Williams has high hopes Pacific Warrior can continue his recent good form when the four-year-old lines up in the Bar Girls Pace (2185m) at Pinjarra this afternoon.
Pacific Warrior, one of five horses in work for Williams, has been the stable star with three consecutive Pinjarra wins since recently arriving from New Zealand.
The bay gelding impressed on debut when he comfortably accounted for Santerra before backing up to win stylishly from Midnight Dylan over 2185m.
Last Monday the bay gelding led and set the tempo before drawing away to win by 15m when contesting a 2692m event.
Pacific Warrior, who has an overall record of seven wins from 30 starts, will step from barrier 12 for reinsman Nathan Turvey.
"He is a nice horse with a bit of versatility to him," said Williams.
"He is tough but also has the speed which you gotta have.
"I'm not getting too far ahead of myself but he has done everything we have asked of him.
"Today is a tougher encounter with a couple of nice horses in it and from the draw.
"But I think he is up to it."
The Greg and Skye Bond team will have claims with stable mates Millwoods Delight and Millwood Kansas.
Millwood Kansas, to be driven by Colin Brown from barrier four, will seek to rebound after finishing next to last as the odds on favourite at Northam last time out.
Her form prior was solid when she scored four wins and two placings from her first six appearances.
Millwoods Delight also failed to fire and beat just one runner home when ninth of 11 behind Elishgood at Gloucester Park on July 16.
It followed consecutive wins at Pinjarra and Northam respectively.
The bay filly has drawn in two for driver Morgan Woodley.
