TALENTED Tasmanian greyhound Lillycette made her way into the final of the Group 1 Association Cup (720m) at Wentworth Park in Sydney with a game second in her heat last Saturday night.

Lillycette has been racing in great form over the longer distances in Tasmania and after winning a race at The Meadows in Melbourne two weeks ago trainer Ted Medhurst decided to throw her in at the deep end and nominate for the Group 1 race in Sydney.

She made it to a heat and never let her trainer down finishing a very game second at what was her first look at the tricky Wentworth Park circuit.

Punters respected her form and installed her as race favourite at $3 with fixed odds operators.

Lillycette has drawn box three in the final to be run at Wentworth Park on Saturday night.

Listen to what trainer Ted Medhurst had to say about Lillycette’s Association Cup heat win and her prospects in the final.
