Dogs to follow

Form expert Dale Code has picked out a selection of greyhounds to follow from around Victoria. You may even want to add them to your Blackbook account.

ORSON THUNDER
Breeding: Dec ’19 Orson Allen x Destini Supreme
Trainer: Darren Archer, Korumburra
Record: 1 start 1-0-0

Dale says: “Has had just the one start and made a huge impression when he posted the fastest ever recorded time for a maiden win over 400m at Warragul last month. His first split time of 8.13sec was elite and overall he ran a mind blowing 22.16sec. Hailing from the strong Darren Archer kennel, Orson Thunder is certainly one to keep an eye out for.”

Best traits: Elite speed soon after box rise; huge upside
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 450m – 500m

“Hailing from the strong Darren Archer kennel, Orson Thunder is certainly one to keep an eye out for.”

WATCH: ORSON THUNDER (1) was devastating on debut winning by over eight lengths in 22.16sec at Warragul over 400m on November 23.     Results

EMANI BALE
Breeding: Oct ‘19 Jarvis Bale x Alera Bale
Trainer: Daniel Gibbons, Avalon
Record: 27 starts 6-1-7

Dale says: “Promising stayer who can run all day. Her last two performances have been super, and she demonstrated her versatility with a brilliant last-to-first victory over 525m at The Meadows recently. Backed up that effort with an eye-catching placing in a strong 600m race at The Meadows last week. Emani Bale continues to get better with more racing, and she is a chance in any race she contests, particularly over 600m and beyond.”

Best traits: Keen chaser; can run all day
Ideal draw:
Box 1
Ideal distance:
650m and beyond

“Emani Bale continues to get better with more racing, and she is a chance in any race she contests, particularly over 600m and beyond.”

WATCH: EMANI BALE (8) weaved a passage from last to first on TAB Phoenix night to prevail at The Meadows over 525m on December 18.     Results

ASTON PROFIT
Breeding: Mar ’19 Barcia Bale x Aston Tara
Trainer: Jason Sharp, Avalon
Record: 52 starts 14-12-10

Dale says: “Has been a model of consistency on the provincial circuit throughout her career. Arguably one of the fastest beginners in the state, she continually produces elite first sectionals in her races. It took until her 52nd start to make her city debut, where she showed her trademark early speed and led up a strong field before tiring over the concluding stages to finish fourth. She has slowly stepped up in distance in recent months and continues to get stronger with every run. I have no doubt Aston Profit can pinch a city race or two and she should continue to add to her impressive race record.”

Best traits: Near faultless beginner; getting stronger
Ideal draw:
Not applicable as she can lead from any draw
Ideal distance:
425m

“I have no doubt Aston Profit can pinch a city race or two and she should continue to add to her impressive race record.”

WATCH: ASTON PROFIT (1) dashed away at box rise and had enough pace in reserve to hold on for victory at Ballarat over 450m on December 11.     Results
