His last win was July 2 at Albion Park over the same 331m trip, beating home Paddy Hayze and Lock It In.

Trainer Hosking was happy with the improvement and indicated Jungle King would stay on the same path in southeast Queensland.

“Just going to keep working him through the grades,” he said.

“He is a nice young dog but just has a 50/50 rate of beginning at the moment.

“Hopefully he can master that, and he'll be very competitive going through the grades.”

The x dog has now had nine career starts, notching four wins and three placings.
