JAMES Madigan will be hoping to continue his run of success at the latest Lismore greyhound race meeting.

The Junction Hill trainer, who enjoyed two wins at Casino on Friday, has two runners in the feature race at the Colemans Point track tomorrow night.

Pepi Katona and Royal Victory will go for Madigan in the $2015 Centrebet Best Eight Stake (420m), with Pepi Katona likely to command much attention from punters.

The two-year-old blue racer has an admirable nine wins from 12 starts, with a string of previous wins at Lismore and Grafton.

Royal Victory is not quite such a spectacular performer but may also be worth a punt.

The three-year-old, which starts from box seven, has a useful 26 starts from 45 placings and has been in handy form.

It also seems to like the box, with three podium finishes from five previous starts.

Ten races are on the card and action starts at 6.45pm.
