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.

 Feb ’19 Cutting Edge x Maximum Lil
Trainer: Clifford Smith, Wonwondah
Record: 25 starts 9-4-0

Dale says:  “After a moderate beginning, Crackerjack Keg quickly powered into a forward position early before clipping off heels and losing serious momentum. Spotting short-priced favourite and Horsham 410m track record holder Oriental Amber (Box 4) a healthy start mid race, victory looked beyond him, but once balanced Crackerjack Keg absolutely sprouted wings to run over the top of the popular elect and claim this brilliant victory in a smart 23.16sec.”     Results

 Jul ’18 Fernando Bale x No Sparkle Leica
Trainer: Brook Ennis, Lara
Record: 46 starts 17-17-5

Dale says: “Greyhound racing is a unique code in the sense that these wonderful animals run purely on instinct. However, you could have been mistaken for thinking Barooga Smoke had been ridden by a jockey when showing elite track sense in recording this perfectly timed, top shelf win on TAB Melbourne Cup night. What makes this performance even more brilliant is that it was at Group 3 level, and Barooga Smoke had to reel in Group 1 Adelaide Cup winner Do It, after the latter had opened up what appeared to be a race-winning lead.”     Results

Breeding: May ’19 Zambora Brockie x She’s A Collinda
Trainer: Jason Thompson, Pearcedale
Record: 20 starts 8-4-2

Dale says: “One of the best backed runners on TAB Melbourne Cup night was justified when True Collinda turned in this dominant all-the-way victory in a sizzling 29.17sec. To put this run into perspective, Koblenz captured the Group 1 Melbourne Cup in 29.40sec, which was more than three lengths inferior to the time posted by True Collinda.”     Results

#4 ASTON FLAME (Box 8)
Breeding: Apr ’19 KC And All x Aston Miley
Trainer: Ian Garland, Longlea
Record: 22 starts 13-0-1

Dale says: “Hard to go past a track record run and that’s exactly what rising star Aston Flame achieved in this blistering 21.30sec win over 385m at Shepparton. The litter sister to Aston Rupee shaved 0.01sec off the previous record set by country cups king Ferdinand Boy.”     Results
