Daily Mail: ‘Typhoon’ warning for Traralgon

G2 Bendigo Cup placegetter Typhoon Sammy set the 395m time standard on Friday night and the winner of 22 races from 33 starts headlines tonight’s G2 SEN Track Traralgon Cup final.

G1 Melbourne Cup runner-up Lala Kiwi, G2 Healesville Cup placegetter Hill Top Jonah, three-time G2 country cup champion Ferdinand Boy and dual G2 runner-up More Sauce are big dangers to Typhoon Sammy.

Recent G2 Warragul Cup finalist Gypsy Bun and G1 Adelaide Cup runner-up Mr. Fix It clash in the $10,000 winner-take-all Cup Night Match Race, while Group-class performers Got The Torque, Paua Of Oscar and Aston Shine battle in a $15,000 to-the-winner 500m Special Event.

TAB Phoenix runner True Collinda and G2 finalist Immunity are in action at Ballarat this evening.

? THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT ?
? Wednesday 26 January

? $4.50 Win – SOLEUS
? Ballarat ? Race 3 ? Box 7 ? 390m ⏱ 7:37pm
TAB fixed odds: $2.40 Win
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540008/race/3


The Watchdog says
? : SOLEUS (7) was dynamic when winning at Geelong on debut and he followed that run up with a top placing here. His box manners can be a worry, but he does possess a dazzling turn of foot and with the empty draw underneath, he should be able to avoid crowding in the run to the first bend.

? $3.50 Multi


First
?:
Win – MR. FIX IT
? Traralgon ? Race 4 ? Box 3 ? 395m ⏱ 7:50pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.55 Win
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540026/race/4


Second
?: Win – DO GOOD DAVLIN
? Traralgon ? Race 8 ? Box 4 ? 500m ⏱ 9:11pm
TAB fixed odds: $2.40 Win
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540026/race/8


The Watchdog says
? : MR. FIX IT (3) should have too much early zip for GYPSY BUN (1) in the Cup Night Match Race and I can’t see her reeling him in. DO GOOD DAVLIN (4) has turned in some cracking performances of late and he will appreciate the empty draw on his outside, so with a clear passage early, he should prove too strong in the run home.


Multi price:
$3.72

? $2 Place – HILL TOP JONAH
? Traralgon ? Race 7 ? Box 2 ? 395m ⏱ 8:51pm     ? Must Watch Race ?
TAB fixed odds: $2.90 Place
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540026/race/7


The Watchdog says
? : HILL TOP JONAH (2) is a near faultless beginner, and he should be able to settle in the top two at worst. I’m expecting there to be some crowding behind the leading division and that may be enough to see him zip away mid-race and finish in the top three.
