Tiggerlong Zorro extended his career best run of form with another win at Wagga on Friday night.

Two of the greyhound’s four career wins have come in his last five starts.

Through in two another two seconds and it is easy to see why the Finn kennel is so pleased with how he’s taken the next step in his career.

“He’s been going good,” Michael Finn said.

“He’s coming along good.

“He’s coming out of the boxes good and the good boxes help.

“He’s a handy little dog.”

The victory takes his career record to four wins and six minor placings from 24 starts.

Trained by his wife Helen, Finn thought box one was always going to put him in good stead in the Ladbrokes Monthly Medal Stakes (320m).

Especially after a narrow second last time out.

“He was unlucky last time when we was beaten by,” Finn said.

“It was a good run and out of the same box in a bit of an easier race he jumped a did everything right.”

Leading all the way the $1.70 favourite defeated Fancy Georgie ($12.30) by over two lengths.

Durama Star ($6.30) finished third to extend a good night for Mandurama trainer Stephen Clearly.

Clearly trained the quinella in the first race with Johnny Rambo swooping late to run down Durama Magic.

It was Johnny Rambo’s first win at start three.

Clearly also took out the fourth race on the card with Durama Mystic.

Durama Mystic jumped straight to the front from box four and was never headed.
