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.

#1 TRIUMPH (Box 6)
Breeding: Oct ’20 Zambora Brockie x Segovia
Trainer: Jason Thompson, Pearcedale
Record: 8 starts 3-0-1

Dale says: Favourite punters would have had their hearts in their mouths when the heavily backed Triumph was squeezed out to last soon after the start. Spotting the leaders a big start, the talented youngster went into overdrive mid race. Hugging the rail and still giving the leader a healthy start as they turned for home, Triumph sprouted wings to score this brilliant last-to-first victory.     Results

#2 EL DORADO (Box 8)
Breeding: Nov ’19 Mepunga Blazer x Gold Vein
Trainer: Daryl Holmes, Blind Bight
Record: 21 starts 12-4-1

Dale says: For pure time standard, this emphatic win by El Dorado has to be included. Carving across from the wide alley, he showed explosive speed to cross over to the rail and the further the race went, the greater the margin became. His winning time of 29.78sec on a track that wasn’t conducive to fast times was simply outstanding. To put his run into perspective, superstar sprinter Wow She’s Fast led all the way in winning the Group 1 Maturity Classic Final on the same night in 29.84sec.     Results

Breeding: Jun ’20 Feral Franky x Ethla Allen
Trainer: Daniel Gibbons, Avalon
Record: 21 starts 10-7-2

Dale says: Rising star Nicolson Bale turned in an eye-catching performance to record this outstanding win. After bombing the start, he showed unrivalled speed and quickly worked into second position behind Group 1 Australian Cup runner up Paddy Wants Pats. Considering the calibre of greyhound he was chasing after working so hard mid-race, his effort to run down a superstar sprinter makes this one of the better wins you will see. Certainly one to add to your blackbook.     Results
