‘Sammy’ set to shine at Horsham

0

The first star race of the Western Race Festival is staged tonight with Typhoon Samy tipped to blast rivals in $47,000 to winner Horsham Cup Group 2 Final (485m), i.e. Race 8 at 9:28 p.m.

the Group 2 Traralgon Cup (395m) winner and double track record holder had to dig deep after slowly coming out of the boxes to his standards in his heat last Friday before claiming his 25and victory in 38 starts.

Despite winning for the sixth time in seven box 1 starts in his innings, Typhoon Sammy is better suited by a wide draw and he comes out of box 8 tonight, where he has three wins and a second in four races.

TYPHOON SAMMY (1) WAS BRAVE IN HIS GROUP 2 HORSHAM CUP ROUND:

Expert form analyst The Watchdog expects Typhoon Sammy to win, pointing out that “he’s one of the best dogs in the country and (he) has this amazing early speed.”

“The dog is going great and box eight is a big plus. Everything points to it.”

Three-time Horsham Cup winning coach Jason Thompson also agrees with The Watchdog.

“We really wanted to draw ‘pink’ and there will be no excuses. I wouldn’t expect him to miss the start again,” Thompson told GRV’s Gerard Guthrie.

“Usually Box 8 takes him out and gives him that leeway. There’s nothing falling on him and he just needs those 10 or 20 yards and then he explodes.

Typhoon Sammy is the fixed favorite $2.50 TAB ahead boston garden and Ivan from Zara ($5) – both Derby National Group 1 (520m) finalists – old news ($6) and Lots of chatter ($7).

BOSTON GARDEN (4) WAS TOO STRONG IN HIS HORSHAM CUP GROUP 2 ROUND:

Boston Garden (26.90 seconds) was the fastest of the six round winners with Zara’s Ivan (26.92 seconds) slightly behind.

Old News managed to take over Group 1 Adelaide Cup (530m) champion Do it last Friday, while Lots Of Chatter – two-time Group 2 runners-up – look to register their 35and win at start 99.
