How do I extract a field between two strings using a regular expression?

I have logs having string like:

127.0.0.1|> GET /alldata
127.0.0.1|> GET /somedata
127.0.0.1|> GET /nodata
127.0.0.1|> POST /nodata
127.0.0.1|> PUT /nodata
127.0.0.1|> DELETE /nodata

I want to extract the field between 127.0.0.1|> and /
i.e i need GET,POST,PUT,DELETE to be in an extracted field.

NOTE: There's a space after > and before /
