    HARD work and dedication should result in a just reward at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night.

    As a show of gratitude for his efforts around the stable trainer Roy Roots junior has engaged young reinsman Tom Ison to drive Glenferrie Typhoon in the Yamamoto Trotters’ Mobile.

    Successful at the same venue a fortnight ago when partnered by Lauren Tritton, Glenferrie Typhoon is a short-priced favourite despite his outside of the front row draw.

    “Tom has been really helpful around the place so I’ve given him the drive,” Roots said. “It’s a good chance for him to get his first metropolitan win.

    “Tom drives him track work so he knows the horse.

    “Hopefully it all goes to plan and they make their way into the winners’ circle.”

    Positive Glenferrie Typhoon is back to his feature winning best, Roots has no doubt the son of Majestic Son is ready to dominate the local trotting ranks.

    Roots is also considering a winter escape with the gelding.

    “He is working a treat and is feeling terrific,” Roots said. “He’s right back to his top and ready to go on with it.

    “The discretionary races will be a little different cause he’ll have to come from back marks, but I can’t see any reason why he won’t dominate the mobiles.

    “Even if he has to come from barrier 10 each week, he has brilliant gate speed so can go forward over a mile, or work his way forward over 2300 metres.

    “I’m thinking about taking him to Queensland, so I’ll just see how he goes along between now and then.”
