Former Victorian chaser Aston Dee Bee certainly picked up where he left off after breaking the record at Bulli last week, blitzing his rivals over 450m at Maitland this afternoon, in a near-record time of 24.74.

The son of Barcia Bale and Aston Elle, recently transferred to Mackay's Richmond Vale kennels after notching up 10 wins for astute Victorian conditioner Jason Thompson.

The 36kg heavyweight set a new track record over 472m at Bulli last week, clocking a blistering time of 25.78.

Aston Dee Bee is no stranger to impressive personal bests, having run 29.19 at Sandown Park, 29.74 at The Meadows and 24.98 at Warrnambool.
