Dogs to follow – Tinker Fran, Yamasaki Bale and Every Four Years

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.

May ’20 Kiowa Mon Manny x Dyna Peanut
Trainer: Correy Grenfell, Anakie
Record: 21 starts 3-5-3

Dale says: I love the way Correy and Samantha Grenfell have been slowly stepping Tinker Fran up in distance from her very first start over 390m at Ballarat to a heat of the Group 1 Bold Trease over 715m at Sandown Park two runs back when running a gallant third behind elite stayer Cawbourne Magic.

With some more maturity, Tinker Fran looks set to become a top-line front-running stayer.

Best trait: Versatility
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 650m

Jun ’20 Feral Franky x Houston Bale
Trainer: Rebecca Gibbons, Avalon
Record: 23 starts 5-4-4

Dale says: Yamasaki Bale burst onto the scene in just his second start with a flying win at Sale in 24.84sec from box one.

Yamasaki Bale is desperate for the red alley and that is where we will see a return to form for this gifted sprinter, particularly over 500m or thereabouts.

Best traits: Keen railer; mid-race engine
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 500m

Dec ’20 Bernardo x Eye Will Reign
Trainer: John Paraskevas, Pearcedale
Record: 7 starts 5-1-0

Dale says: Every Four Years is yet to turn two years old, but he has already posted some sizzling wins around the provincial circuit.

Every Four Years gives every indication he can develop into a country cups proposition.

Best traits: Tenacity; explosive speed soon after box rise
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 400m
