Daily Mail: ‘Merit’ to stay sharp at Warragul

G2 Healesville Cup finalist Aston Merit is eyeing his fourth-straight win this evening at Warragul, with Gunai Rebel, Dr. Ryker and Golden Skyrocket the biggest threats.

G1 Hobart Thousand winner Aussie Secret faces kennelmate and G2 Bendigo Cup placegetter Typhoon Sammy in a 400m Free For All.

Track specialists Duncan and Hello George, plus the well-performed Handsome Jack, are in action at Healesville, while G3 515m Speed Star runner Highly Explosive races at Sandown Park.

📢 THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT 📢
📅 Sunday 2 January

💰 $5 Win – SUPER FOOT
📍 Healesville 🏁 Race 2 🔲 Box 8 📏 300m ⏱ 11:39am
TAB fixed odds: $2.90 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666539928/race/2


The Watchdog says
🎤 : He takes on a good one in AUBAMEYANG (6), however he is just as talented, and he appears ideally drawn out wide. His box manners are good, and he has tremendous burn once balanced, so he should be able to assume control after around 50m and he will prove too strong in the run home.

💰 $4 Multi

Win – DUNCAN
📍 Healesville 🏁 Race 4 🔲 Box 1 📏 300m ⏱ 12:12pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.50 Win

Second
🦵: Win – ALCINDOR
📍 Healesville 🏁 Race 10 🔲 Box 1 📏 350m ⏱ 2:04pm
TAB fixed odds: $2 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666539928/race/10


The Watchdog says
🎤 : DUNCAN (1) is a track specialist, and he should prove too strong in the run home for his rivals. ALCINDOR (1) continues to impress and from the good draw, he should be able to settle in the top two or three early and he will power to the line in the closing stages.

👀 Must Watch Race 👀

Mixed Grade 4/5

📍 Warragul 🏁 Race 7
📏 400m ⏱ 8:08pm

The Watchdog says 🎤: ASTON MERIT (7) is a star in the making and he should get plenty of cover from GOLDEN SKYROCKET (8) early and they should head into the bend in the top two.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎤:

ASTON MERIT (7) is one of the most exciting chasers in work and he was breathtaking when going from last to first in the space of 150m at Warrnambool last time out. He is still learning what it is all about, however if he can mend his box manners, he has the ability to be elite. GOLDEN SKYROCKET (8) has won here in a slick 22.58sec and if the favourite makes a mistake, she can capitalise, while GUNAI REBEL (1) is expected to be on the pace from the outset.
