Diamond Laroo back to her best

DIAMOND Laroo returned to her best form when she took out the Club Goonellabah Trophy (520m) at the Lismore greyhounds on Tuesday night.

Cream King took up the early running and had established a handy break over Diamond Laroo, which was bowling along nicely in second place.

Diamond Laroo then swept to the lead around the home turn for a comfortable 21⁄4-length win over the fast-finishing Emily's Babe, with Cream King a fading third another 21⁄2 lengths away.

The winner clocked 30.12 seconds.

The win was Diamond Laroo's 10th for John and Julie Haaring and her fourth in Lismore.

Vollee set the time standard over the 420m journey when she demolished a 5th Grade line-up in the Tradesman and Timber Hardware Stake.

The race was as good as over when the lids opened as the Jim Pozoglou-owned and Neville Robson-trained sprinter opened up a winning break.

At the post Vollee had eight lengths to spare over Placid Bear, with Classic Impulse 13⁄4 lengths away in third spot in the fast time of 23.89s.

Alstonville mentor Neville Robson has done a sterling job with this greyhound.

Vollee has now won her two starts since fracturing a hock back in January and the victory this week takes her record to five wins from just nine starts.
