PROMISING youngster Mr Phenomenal was too good in the North Coast Motor Group Trophy Final (520m) at the Lismore greyhounds on Tuesday night.

Bita Pinch began well from box six and looked the likely winner when he opened up a handy break around the first bend.

Mr Phenomenal, which was fourth away, eventually worked his way into second spot.

As the field swung for home, Mr Phenomenal swept down the outside to score a solid win over Bita Pinch with Chew Dear another half-length away third.

The winner clocked 30.71 seconds.

Siam Smile returned to her best in the Luke Sullivan Building Stake (420m) when she led from start to finish.

She began perfectly from box two and held on gamely to hold out the fast-finishing Classic Bear to win by a half-length in 24.47s.

Siam Smile made it win No8 in Lismore with six minor placings from just 17 starts for John and Deidre Free.
