Unable to see any of the racing from Tabcorp Park Melton last week due to those pesky footy commitments in Sydney, I eagerly jumped online as we travelled home to check on the results and what has become a familiar scene awaited me on thetrots.com.au.

Code Bailey nearing long-awaited comeback
He was one of the country's top-line stars through the early part of last year, but the exciting Code Bailey has only been seen at the races just once since his appearance in the 2020 Miracle Mile.
