VICTORIAN raider Soho Tribeca is primed and ready for his Queensland debut at Albion Park on Saturday night.
Pleased with the manner in which the son of American Ideal has handled the trip north, trainer Michael Stanley stated Soho Tribeca is “at his peak” for his pending assignment.
Soho Tribeca is engaged in the Sunshine Sprint, where he has drawn the second row over 1660 metres.
“I couldn’t be happier with him,” Stanley said. “He took the trip in his stride and has settled in as if he owns the place.
“He’s eating, drinking, relaxed and enjoying the warmer weather.”
Selecting My Field Marshal as the one to beat, Stanley expects former topliner Ohoka Punter to be a major improver.
Second in the Len Smith Mile at Menangle a fortnight ago, My Field Marshal has drawn alongside Soho Tribeca in gate 10.
First-up since February when fourth at Albion Park last week, Ohoka Punter will begin from barrier two.
“My Field Marshal is the stand out as the obvious one to beat, but it is a good field,” Stanley said. “If Ohoka Punter is getting back to his best we know what he is capable of.
“Then there are the likes of Atomic Red, Frankie Rocks and Tact Tate, which all have their claims.”
