In case you missed it

Form expert Dale Code has picked out a selection of runs from around Victoria that have caught the eye over the past fortnight.

Breeding: Jan ’18 Allen Deed x Helma Bale
Trainer: Andrea Dailly, Anakie
Record: 37 starts 10-8-4
Comment: After a solid beginning at Ballarat she was shuffled back to second last. Once balanced she started to really motor and although running extremely wide and appearing to have lost any chance of winning turning for home, she unleashed a powerful finishing burst to snatch victory on the line in a speedy 25.29sec. What makes this run even more special was it was in Free for All class.   Results

Breeding: Jan ’19 Fernando Bale x Nayla Swift
Trainer: David Geall, Lara
Record: 42 starts 23-8-2
Comment: Hard to go past a track record run and that’s exactly what Ferdinand Boy achieved in his mind-blowing 21.31sec Shepparton win over 390m. In the process he gave one of the fastest sprinters in the land, Fernando Bluey (3), a head start, but he then turned on the heat mid-race and proved too powerful over the concluding stages. Subsequently, Ferdinand Boy is now the only greyhound who holds two track records at a Victorian track, having previously broken the 450m record (24.75) when winning the Group 2 Shepparton Cup in May.   Results

#3 QWARA BALE (Box 2)
Breeding: Apr ’19 Allen Deed x Daithy Allen
Trainer: Andrea Dailly, Anakie
Record: 30 starts 17-2-4
Comment: After a solid beginning was squeezed out to last, spotting the leader a huge start as she came out of the first turn. Once in full gear, she rounded up half the field and rattled home to finish an eye catching fourth beaten by just 3.5 lengths. Her effort to make up lots of ground on group winners Jax Bale (4) and Catch The Thief (8) makes this one of the runs of the fortnight.   Results

Breeding: Dec ’18 Barcia Bale x Visualize It
Trainer: Aaron Debattista, Tooleen
Record: 14 starts 7-1-0
Comment: One of the best backed runners of the night and The Watchdog’s Daily Mail bet was justified when Visualiser posted a last-to-first win. Normally a front runner, he bombed the start before showing tremendous acceleration and track sense to close in on the leaders, then hooked wide on the home bend and snatched victory in the shadows of the post to make punters and Daily Mail followers very happy.   Results
