It's a perfect day for the Lismore Cup, Turf Club says

THE weather is perfect and track conditions very near-so for today's Lismore Cup event, the Lismore Turf Club says.

Scott Jones from the Lismore Turf Club was on the radio talking about the Cup and said the day was perfect.

The track was rated at 6 and they were expecting it to go to a 5 by the time racing started.

Tracks are rated up to 10.

A track rated at 3 to 4 is ideal, with 10 being very wet. More than 10 and the race would be called off.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting a mostly sunny, if slightly chilly, day at Lismore, with a top of 31C.

There is a 30% chance of showers forecast for the Northern Rivers. However, the rain, if it comes, is not forecast until tonight and then along the coastal strip.
