Dogs to follow – Ailee Bale, Sunnyside Zeus and Candy Model

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.

Sep ’20 Allen Deed x Sammy Allen
Trainer: Mark Delbridge, Balliang
Record: 11 starts 7-2-1

Dale says: Ailee Bale has won seven-of-11 including blistering wins at Warragul in 25.64sec (Best of Meeting) and last start at Bendigo when stepping up to 500m and taking time honours again in 27.94sec.

She is a member of an outstanding litter that includes strong run-on city class chasers Valor Bale and Zoha Bale.

However, unlike those litter brothers mentioned, she has a different racing pattern that I believe can see her become the pick of the litter.

Possessing brilliant box manners, she has shown she can either lead or come off the speed to win.

It’s only a matter of time before Ailee Bale makes her metropolitan debut and I am confident that she will develop into a top city-class sprinter.

Best traits: Versatility; can lead or come off the speed; tenacious chaser
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 500m

Breeding: Jan ’21 My Redeemer x Minter Bee
Trainer: Matthew Clark, Briagolong
Record: 6 starts 1-3-0

Dale says: Sunnyside Zeus only has one win, but I was taken with how he handled himself when stepping up to 520m at Sale and was placed behind the smart Collinda Vogue in both the heat and final of a Mixed Grade 6/7 series.

He is engaged to run at Sandown Park on Tuesday where I think he can make it win number two.

Sunnyside Zeus will develop into a more-than-handy provincial sprinter and he is capable of winning multiple races in town before his career is done.

Best traits: Plenty of upside; solid muster soon after box rise
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 460m

Breeding: Jan ’21 Barcia Bale x Champion Model
Trainer: Kerry Minne, Moe South
Record: 5 starts 2-1-2

Dale says: Candy Model has raced five times, winning two of his past three in brilliant fashion.

He boasts a ridiculous turn of speed soon after box rise and is getting stronger and faster with each run.

If he can improve his box manners, Candy Model can develop into a top provincial sprinter.

Best traits: Elite motor soon after box rise to the first sectional
Ideal draw: Will thrive off inside draws
Ideal distance: 400m-450m
