    TOPLINE trotter Glenferrie Typhoon will make his racing return at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night.

    Given a freshen-up since arriving from Western Australia, Glenferrie Typhoon will also debut for trainer Roy Roots junior.

    Winner of his last seven starts, the son of Majestic Son had his previous outing at Gloucester Park on October 16.

    “He got here about three weeks ago, but the trip from WA trip knocked him around,” Roots said. “The plan was to race him in the Inter Dominion in Victoria, but I had him vetted after he got here and his blood wasn’t quite right.

    “We would have been pushing time to have him ready.”

    Although first-up from a break, Glenferrie Typhoon shapes as a class above his rivals, which has seen him installed a short $1.40 despite drawing barrier nine over a mile.

    “He’s trialling today which should sharpen him up a bit,” Roots said. “He is a speedy horse and going over a mile will be a nice start for him.

    “I’m still learning about him, but having watched his races, he is quick out of the gate and he should enjoy the big track at Menangle.”

    Should all go according to plan, Glenferrie Typhoon will find himself south of the Murray River in the New Year.

    Roots has set his sights on the Great Southern Star, which is scheduled to be conducted in Melton on Australia Day.

    Glenferrie Typhoon won last year’s edition of the Group One when prepared locally by Andy Gath.

    “I’m looking to give him two starts here before heading to Melbourne for the Great Southern Star,” Roots said. “Once he gets there he will have a lead-up run at Melton then go into the Great Southern Star.”
