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

Breeding: Dec ’17 Worm Burner x Establish
Trainer: Rodney Millington, Red Cliffs
Record: 52 starts 12-9-10

Dale says:
“Made this column with a desperately unlucky second six months ago but went one better in recording this astonishing win. After a solid beginning, Hatters Lane was blocked for a run and lost valuable ground. Consequently, he was shuffled back towards the rear of the field. Spotting the leaders a big start turning for home, ‘Hatters’ hooked wide and went into overdrive up the home straight to go on and claim this brilliant near last-to-first victory.”     Results

#2 FLOSSIE ANN (Box 4)
Breeding: Dec ’19 Mepunga Blazer x Annasay
Trainer: William McMahon, Darriman
Record: 10 starts 2-3-2

Dale says:
Flossie Ann was part of The Watchdog’s $10 Daily Mail spend on this particular day, with followers having their hearts in their mouths when she found plenty of early bother. However, despite giving the leaders a massive start mid race, she somehow managed to reel them in with this barnstorming finish to claim an enormous victory after all had seemed lost.”     Results

#3 ASTON JONAS (Box 6)
Dec ’19 Aston Kimetto x Aston Jadore
Trainer: Ian Garland, Longlea
Record: 8 starts 4-1-0

Dale says:
 “Was challenging for the early lead but got squeezed out to the rear of the field and victory looked beyond him. Displaying elite track sense, he then ducked back towards the inside rail and gained valuable ground through the second turn. Still trailing by a significant margin, he quickly found top gear and gathered in the front runners before powering away to record this impressive win.”     Results

Mar ’19 Raw Ability x Unquestionably
Trainer: Mark Filomeno, Craigieburn
Record: 23 starts 4-3-3

Dale says:
 “Backed off the map, favourite backers had reason to cry when Unquestioned suffered the narrowest of defeats in this desperately unlucky run. Receiving more checks than a bank teller, the Healesville specialist somehow managed to put herself in the finish in what was a gutsy performance.”     Results
