Daily Mail: ‘Sammy’ set to shine at Warragul

G2 Bendigo Cup placegetter Typhoon Sammy was scintillating at Warragul last Sunday night and he is the headline act in the second heat of the G2 SEN Track Warragul Cup this evening.

Inaugural TAB Phoenix winner Wow She’s Fast is the star attraction in the sixth and final heat.

G2 placegetter Gypsy Bun v dual G3 finalist Hebridean Black v Invictus Rising v dual G3 winner Barooga Smoke is a competitive first heat, while two-time G1 winner Qwara Bale faces in-form chasers Robbie Rotten, On The Bit and Brother Bearing in the third heat.

G1 Melbourne Cup runner-up Lala Kiwi is the standout chaser in the fourth heat, while G1 Hobart Thousand winner Aussie Secret lines up against G3 finalist Paddy Wants Pats and G1 Silver Chief placegetter Titan Blazer in the fifth heat.

The Watchdog says
? : He loves racing here and he will be suited by the smaller line-up. His box manners are solid, but he does his best work in the middle stages, so if he can get to the outside without finding too much bother, he can get the cash.

? Box 6 ? 460m ⏱ 7:49pm

TAB fixed odds: $1.90 Win

The Watchdog says ?: TYPHOON SAMMY (6) returned to his brilliant best over 400m last Sunday night and I’m expecting him to begin well again tonight. He should have enough pace to hold out his rivals at the bend and they will have trouble reeling him in.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview ?:

Thrilling series and I think this is the strongest of the heats. TYPHOON SAMMY (6) returned to his brilliant best with a dazzling 22.10sec win here last Sunday night and he should be ready to tackle the 460m journey. He is armed with blinding pace soon after box rise, and he may be able to break them up through the bend. KINSON BALE (3) was recently placed in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup final, and he looks to be the obvious danger. However, he can be a little hit or miss early, so he can’t afford to make too many mistakes. HENNESSEY (2) is facing his toughest test to date, but he has carved out some scorching wins of late, while the ultra-consistent HAZEY ROY (4) has the speed to lead and is capable of causing an upset.

Form ?

The Watchdog says
? : He runs into an in-form chaser in BROTHER BEARING (6), however he is all class and appears suitably drawn out wide. He has terrific pace once balanced and at the price he is great value.
