Top Queensland stayer on the way
THE appearance of champion Queensland stayer Miss Brook in the Harvey's Towing Invitation (720m) will be another highlight of an outstanding night of greyhound racing at the Lismore Workers Cup meeting next Tuesday night.
Miss Brook proved she was the best stayer in Queensland when she scored an emphatic 13-length win in the Queensland Final of the National Championship on August 16 at Albion Park in Brisbane.
She then finished a gallant second in the National Final at The Meadows in Victoria to Flashing Flood after having no luck early.
The Paul Felgate owned and trained sprinter has now won 27 races in three States and will start a warm favourite in the Invitation.
The John Clarson trained local stayer Kulu Magic will have his admirers. Kulu Magic ran a good second at Albion Park on August 23 over 600m, so the 720m will suit him and he races particularly well at Lismore, where he has won seven races.
Token Ned, another Queenslander, was a last start winner in Brisbane in 42.43s for the 720m and also has claims.
One patron will win a trip for two to the NRL grand final just by attending the meeting.
