Dogs to follow – Holy Smoke, Spirit World and Zippy Wiesman

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.

Dec ’20 Bella Infrared x Amelia Christa
Trainer: Robin Moore, Devon Meadows
Record: 11 starts 4-1-3

Dale says: Holy Smoke was racing admirably at Tier 3 level just three months ago but she has gone to another level in recent times which was evident in her smart 29.48sec Sandown Park win.

She is armed with slick early speed and is getting stronger with more racing.

With continued growth and improvement, Holy Smoke can win her fair share of city races, particularly when drawn inside.

Best traits: Early speed
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 450m

Aug ’20 Aussie Infrared x Okawa In Black
Trainer: Christopher Tilley, Sale
Record: 11 starts 2-4-1

Dale says: Spirit World has done the majority of her racing up the Healesville straight, where she has produced some encouraging performances.

Spirit World gives the impression she can win over a broad range of distances (300-500m) and with this versatility, combined with greater experience around the circle, she can develop into a more than handy sprinter.

Best traits: Versatility; can lead or come off the speed
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 460m

Aug ’19 KC And All x Zippy Daph
Trainer: Donna Knight, Talbot
Record: 41 starts 11-4-6

Dale says: Zippy Wiesman is one of the most improved sprinters currently racing on the provincial circuit.

Armed with sizzling early speed and racing with newfound confidence, Zippy Wiesman is not far off matching it with the best country sprinters in the state.

Best traits:
Explosive early speed
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 400m
