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.

BIG OPAL ROCKS
Breeding:
Jun ’20 Kinloch Brae x Red Rocks
Trainer: Mario Briganti, Tuerong
Record: 3 starts 2-0-0

Dale says: “Made the Runs of the Fortnight column last week and franked that form with an electrifying 29.75sec win at The Meadows on Saturday night. His run home sectional of 11.95sec in that win was absolutely mind blowing. Possesses a great turn of speed soon after box rise and if he can improve his box manners there aren’t many greyhounds in the land that are going to catch him. At just 19 months of age and scope for further improvement, the sky is the limit for this rising star.”

Best traits: Keen chaser; elite run home times
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 500m-600m

“At just 19 months of age and scope for further improvement, the sky is the limit for Big Opal Rocks.”

WATCH: At only his third start, BIG OPAL ROCKS (3) displayed star potential winning by almost 14 lengths in a blistering 29.75sec at The Meadows (525m) on January 8.     Results

ASTON ZIEBELL
Breeding: Jan ‘20 Aston Kimetto x Aston Dinnigan
Trainer: Paul Abela, Parwan
Record: 11 starts 4-4-1

Dale says: “Extremely powerful chaser who made an impression when he gave the promising Jungle Panther a start and a beating in his brilliant 26.99sec last start Horsham win. Continues to get better with each run and, with a step up in distance imminent, this exciting youngster gives every indication that he can develop into a successful city-class middle-distance performer.”

Best traits: Powerful chaser; huge upside
Ideal draw:
Box 8
Ideal distance:
600m

“Aston Ziebell gives every indication that he can develop into a successful city-class middle-distance performer.”

WATCH: ASTON ZIEBELL (8) produced a tremendous late burst to clear away from his rivals in a slick 26.99sec at Horsham (485m) on January 4.     Results

ASTON MERIT
Breeding: Apr ’19 KC And All x Aston Tara
Trainer: Jessica Sharp, Avalon
Record: 10 starts 5-2-0

Dale says: “Burst on to the racing scene by making the Group 2 Healesville Cup final in just his fourth race start (finished fourth). A lightly-raced speedster with just 10 starts to his name, he has shown enough to suggest he can become one of the state’s best provincial sprinters. Armed with unrivalled speed soon after box rise, with continued growth he can become a regular country cups contender.”

Best traits: Unrivalled speed soon after box rise
Ideal draw:
Box 1
Ideal distance:
400-450m

“Armed with unrivalled speed soon after box rise … Aston Merit can become a regular country cups contender.”

WATCH: ASTON MERIT (3) was able to overcome an unusually slow start in a dashing 22.00sec effort at Warrnambool (390m) on December 23.     Results
