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

#1 EMANI BALE (Box 2)
 Oct ’19 Jarvis Bale x Alera Bale
Trainer: Daniel Gibbons, Avalon
Record: 35 starts 8-3-7

Dale says: “After a steady beginning, Emani Bale found herself towards the rear of the field as they came out of the first turn. With a lap to go she was spotting tearaway leader Sir Harley a massive start, but she went into overdrive showing brilliant track sense to rattle home and produce this top-shelf victory.”     Results

#2 AMRON BOY (Box 1)
Breeding: July ’20 Zambora Brockie x Miami Fernando
Trainer: Brooke Ennis, Lara
Record: 2 starts 2-0-0

Dale says: “Hard to comprehend how a dog having just his second race start and at just 19 months of age can produce a run of this magnitude. Settling just off the early speed and recording a fast 5.09 first sectional, this prodigious talent turned on the heat mid-race before powering away to an emphatic victory stopping the clock at a jaw-dropping 29.07sec.”     Results

Breeding: May ’19 Zambora Brockie x Shes’s A Collinda
Trainer: Jason Thompson, Pearcedale
Record: 18 starts 6-1-3

Dale says: “Although the winner Jarick Bale was brilliant running a blistering 34.10sec, the effort of Collinda Patty to run third was super. In a field worthy of a Group 1 final, she was absolutely poleaxed early and subsequently squeezed out to last. To recover and make up the ground she did in such a high-quality field certainly makes this run an eye-catching performance.”     Results

#4 ASTON RUPEE (Box 1)
Breeding: Apr ’19 KC And All x Aston Miley
Trainer: Glenn Rounds, Pearcedale
Record: 41 starts 23-9-4

Dale says:Aston Rupee’s standing as the fastest dog on the planet was reinforced when he came so close to breaking Allen Deed’s long-time track record (29.376sec) with this dominant display of speed and strength in Saturday night’s Australian Cup Consolation. His electrifying time of 29.385sec is the second-fastest time ever recorded over the 525m at The Meadows.     Results
