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

Breeding: Mar ’19 Allen Deed x Houston Bale
Trainer: Mark Delbridge, Balliang
Record: 50 starts 9-7-12

Dale says: “A litter brother to Rookie Rebel winner Jarick Bale who featured in this column in our last edition. Fabroni Bale turned in this freakish run to score one of the better last-to-first city wins you will see. After being absolutely poleaxed early and consequently shuffled back to a distant last, he circumnavigated the field and defied logic to somehow pick up the tearaway leaders to record this amazing victory.”     Results

#2 SODA TITAN (Box 2)
Breeding: Jun ’19 Barcia Bale x Maja Mahi Mahi
Trainer: Maxwell Auld, Tatura
Record: 29 starts 14-5-2

Dale says: “Hard to go past a track record and that’s exactly what Soda Titan achieved when smashing the previous time standard set by Shima Shine (26.79sec) by two lengths with a mind-blowing 26.66sec performance. His all-the-way win was against red hot opposition in the Presidents Cup final over 485m at Horsham.”     Results

Breeding: Jun ’20 Kinloch Brae x Red Rocks
Trainer: Mario Briganti, Pearcedale
Record: 5 starts 0-4-0

Dale says: “Although the winner Deadly Class was brilliant running a blistering 29.88sec, the runner-up Rapaki Rocks caught the eye with this brilliant effort. After making a total mess of the start he exploded once balanced and despite finding trouble through the first turn, he still managed to make up a ton of ground in quick time to finish a gallant second. Certainly one to add for the black book.”     Results
