Promising contender at Lismore Greyhound track

ONE of the FNC's most promising racers will test its skills against handy competition in what should be an intriguing night of greyhound racing at Lismore.

Allegro Star, trained by Alstonville's Pauline Robson, goes in the $1645 420m Cecil Hotel Casino Stakes at tomorrow night's latest meeting at the Colemans Point club.

The two-year-old, which starts in box three, has made a hugely impressive start to its racing career.

Robson's charge has 10 wins and only failed to place once in 21 outings.

With only one win in its last five outings to its name, though, the racer may not be a sure-fire bet.

There are some tough opponents in the field, including several highly experienced campaigners.

Proper Lilly, trained by Stratheden's Charlie Northfield, is always one to watch at this level.

The two-year-old has 24 placings from 36 starts and has been in consistent if unspectacular form recently.

Outlaw Torn, trained by Richmond Vale's Jason Mackay, has an impressive 21 placings from 27 starts to its name.

The three-year-old has mostly going around the 400m distance for the last 12 months, though, and will need to demonstrate its increased stamina levels to take the top spot.

Racing gets under way at 6.44pm.
