RACING: Diamond full of sparkle for Channon

8:00am Tuesday 18th March 2014

West Ilsley trainer Mick Channon believes Crazee Diamond is a sprinter to follow after she opened her account at Wolverhampton yesterday.

The three-year-old filly only had to be shaken up by Willy Twiston-Davies before romping home three and a quarter lengths clear of Jan Van Hoof in a six-furlong maiden stakes.

Sent off a 9-4 chance, the daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar was fulfilling the promise of her second at the track last month.

And Channon said: “She’s all about speed and will be ideal over six or five furlongs.

“There’s very few races over five in the book at present, but I wouldn’t hesitate in dropping her back in trip.

“It would be good to have a proper specialist over the minimum (trip).”
