In case you missed it

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

Breeding: Jun ’20 Kinloch Brae x Red Rocks
Trainer: Mario Briganti, Devon Meadows
Record: 16 starts 8-4-0

Dale says: A litter brother to star sprinter Big Opal Rocks, Kinrock Star turned in one of the strongest performances seen at the new look Traralgon track. Finding himself out the back of the field early, he showed terrific track sense and speed to work himself into second position. Spotting the hot favourite and 500m track record holder Black Sail a healthy start as they turned for home, he charged home to record this eye-catching victory. Certainly one to add to your Blackbook.     Results

Breeding: Mar ’19 Allen Deed x Houston Bale
Trainer: Mark Delbridge, Balliang
Record: 56 starts 11-8-12

Dale says: Has featured in this column previously and it was hard to ignore this outstanding last-to-first victory by Fabroni Bale. In typical fashion he was slow to begin and pushed wide through the first turn, finding himself close to last at the halfway mark. With the brilliant McInerney (1) and Group 1 winner Knicks Bale (4) ahead of him, victory appeared unlikely, but as we have seen before Fabroni Bale stayed wide and thundered home to record another brilliant victory.     Results

#3 RED’S SHOUT (Box 6)
Breeding: Aug ‘20 My Redeemer x Shout Out Loud
Trainer: Brian Brown, Axedale
Record: 9 starts 1-1-3

Dale says: One of the best supported runners of the day, punters had good reason to cry when Red’s Shout turned in a huge performance to finish a desperately unlucky minor placing. After challenging for the early lead, the 22-month-old chaser was squeezed out to last. Then, making a great recovery, he exploded quickly down the back straight but was again denied a run and subsequently lost valuable ground and momentum. Despite finishing a gallant third, the effort from Red’s Shout to make up considerable ground on the leaders show he is certainly one to follow in a similar class of race.     Results
