A NEW-LOOK lure is expected to have greyhounds chasing harder than ever before at Warrnambool's Wannon Park circuit.
Warrnambool is set to follow the rest of the state to a double-pronged lure on November 21.
Greyhound Racing Victoria trialed the double arm lure at Melbourne track The Meadows, Bendigo and Cranbourne successfully.
A study conducted by the University of Technology Sydney also recommended the switch.
Warrnambool Greyhound Racing Club manager Craig Monigatti expected the move to benefit both trainers and punters.
"It should increase the desire for greyhounds chasing the lure," he said.

"If dogs are chasing harder, you'd think that equates to more even racing."
Monigatti said industry feedback had been overwhelmingly positive.
"There hasn't been any negative feedback at all while it's been trailed," he said.
