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

Jun ’20 Kinloch Brae x Red Rocks
Trainer: Mario Briganti, Tuerong
Record: 2 starts 1-0-0

Dale says: “Having just his second race start and at only 18 months of age, Big Opal Rocks overcame a slow start and severe interference to go on to record this impressive win. Certainly one to add to your black book.”     Results

#2 PAUA OF MINDY (Box 6)
Breeding: Apr ’19 Aston Dee Bee x Paua To Admit
Trainer: Steven Bruce White, Buln Buln East
Record: 12 starts 4-6-1

Dale says: “After a steady beginning, Paua Of Mindy displayed top track sense and placed herself into a stalking position mid race. Still with plenty of work to do turning for home, she hooked to the outside and powered home to post this last stride victory, clocking best-of-meeting honours in a slashing 24.64sec.”     Results

#3 ASTON MERIT (Box 3)
 Apr ’19 KC And All x Secret Spell
Trainer: Jessica Sharp, Avalon
Record: 10 starts 5-2-0

Dale says: “Favourite punters had cause for concern when the hot pot uncharacteristically bombed the start, yet in the space of 150 metres, Aston Merit displayed unrivalled speed to pick up the leaders and power away to record this top shelf last-to-first victory in a smart 22.00sec.”     Results

Mar ’19 Allen Deed x Houston Bale
Trainer: Mark Delbridge, Balliang
Record: 44 starts 8-7-12

Dale says: “After a slow start, Fabroni Bale was shuffled back to a clear last. Spotting the leaders a big start, he pulled to the outside and steadily made up ground mid race. Still last as they straightened for home, victory looked beyond him, but he sprouted wings with a phenomenal finishing burst to score in the shadows of the finish line.”     Results
