Wet, cold conditions and a rain-soaked track failed to stop King Nitro adding to his good Devonport record at Tuesday’s North West Greyhound Racing Club meeting.

Trained at Richmond by Steven Hutt, King Nitro ($4.30) scored a strong win in the Rapidvite Invitation beating Quick Advance ($3 fav) and Roxy Rhythm ($8.80).

It was his fifth win from seven starts on the Devonport track and took his overall record to 10 wins from 26 starts.

His first two wins were in Victoria.

King Nitro jumped from box 3 and interrupted a rare run of successive wins for greyhounds drawn in box 4.

They had won the previous three races and won the next two as well.
