Dogs to follow – Monkey’s Style, My Cool Jack and Zara Marnie

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.

MONKEY’S STYLE (Box 1)
Breeding:
 Mar ‘21 Hooked On Scotch x Mepunga Bonnie
Trainer: Chris Johannsen, Devon Meadows
Record: 11 starts 3-1-2

Dale says: I really like the direction Monkey’s Style is heading in.

He appears to be getting faster with every run and his ability to navigate his way through a field has improved with experience.

With continual improvement, Monkey’s Style can win his fair share of races on the provincial circuit and he is capable of tasting city success.

Best traits: Mid-race speed
Ideal draw: Box 8
Ideal distance: 450m

MY COOL JACK (Rug 9; Box 6)
Breeding:
 Sep ‘20 Moreira x She’s Perfect
Trainer: Robert Cunningham, Devon Meadows
Record: 3 starts 0-1-0

Dale says: My Cool Jack had no luck when unplaced in his first two outings but he showed he has plenty of ability when narrowly beaten last start in a fast maiden time (25.96 seconds) at Warragul.

He is engaged to run at Warragul on Tuesday night, this time over the shorter 400m distance, and I’m expecting My Cool Jack to break his maiden status and eventually develop into a handy performer on the provincial circuit.

Best traits: Good speed soon after box rise
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 450m

ZARA MARNIE (Box 8)
Breeding:
Mar ’21 Bernardo x Tidelina
Trainer: Des Douch, Maffra
Record: 2 starts 2-0-0

Dale says: Zara Marnie has burst onto the racing scene winning a heat and final of the GRV VicBred Maiden series at Sale over 440m posting runs of 24.81 seconds and a near-record 24.38 seconds respectively.

Her winning time in the final was mind blowing.

This exciting daughter of Bernardo is armed with brilliant early speed and strength to match and Zara Marnie has ‘future star’ written all over her.

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