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.

FRANCIS BENALI
Breeding: Oct ’20 Benali x Erelda Bale
Trainer: Robert Britton, Lara
Record: 2 starts 1-1-0

Dale says:Francis Benali has impressed at his only two starts with a speedy 29.66sec all-the-way Sandown Park win on debut and followed up that run with an eye-catching second after finding early trouble. He showed tremendous track sense in that second run and chasing ability beyond his experience. With an already shown versatility and plenty of scope for improvement, Francis Benali is set for a successful racing career.”

Best traits: Keen railer; tenacious chaser
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 500m

“Francis Benali is set for a successful racing career.”

WATCH: FRANCIS BENALI (5) did not shirk the task after early interference when finishing runner-up in a winning time of 29.54 seconds at Sandown Park (515m) on May 12.     Results

ASTON PABLO
Breeding: Dec ‘19 Aston Kimetto x Aston Coco
Trainer: Jack Campbell, Anakie
Record: 21 starts 4-1-3

Dale says:Aston Pablo has really found form since he stepped up to distance racing. He recently recorded back-to-back eye-catching wins over the 650m trip at Warrnambool and was far from disgraced when beaten in fast time when finishing fourth in a heat of the Group 1 Sandown Cup on Thursday night. He is a true stayer who can run all day and with continued growth and improvement, Aston Pablo can develop into a top-shelf stayer.”

Best traits: Can run all day
Ideal draw: Box 8
Ideal distance: 700m and beyond

“With continued growth and improvement, Aston Pablo can develop into a top-shelf stayer.”

WATCH: ASTON PABLO (3) was a tremendous last-to-first winner in 37.86 seconds at Warrnambool (650m) on May 4.     Results

PIE BIRD
Breeding: Feb ’20 Aussie Infrared x Zipping Kelly
Trainer: Cheryle Ragen, Kilmany
Record: 1 starts 0-0-1

Dale says:Pie Bird had absolutely no luck on debut when he turned in an impressive performance to run third. He is engaged at Warragul on Tuesday night and, with an ounce of luck, I’m expecting Pie Bird to break his maiden status.”

Best traits: Mid-race speed
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 400m

“I’m expecting Pie Bird to break his maiden status (on Tuesday night).”
