Le Baz shaping as Distance Championship contender

Tasmania’s next generation of stayers gear up for this year’s nationals in two heats of the State Distance Championship at Mowbray on Monday night.

Le Baz for trainer Mick Stringer looks capable of continuing his recent improved form in the second heat. He scored a smart win over Vrontios last week and looks primed for this assignment.

Last year’s state distance representative Mahalo Miss looks the danger in race six.

She is coming off an awe-inspiring win over Tee Cee Benny on Thursday night in Hobart.

The first four placings from each heat will progress to the final next Monday.

Southern-trained greyhounds completed the Tasmanian Derby – Oaks double last week with Two Bills scoring for Shane Whitney and Jouster for Gary Fahey.
