Soho Tribeca in good form

Trainer Michael Stanley has hailed the condition of Soho Tribeca as he prepares to make his Albion Park debut on Saturday night.

The Victorian raider is set to go in the Sunshine Sprint, and Stanley says he is delighted with the way he has settled since making the trip north.

The son of American Ideal has drawn the second row and Stanley says he is in peak condition.

"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."

Looking at the main dangers in the field, Stanley says although My Field Marshal looks the one to beat, former topliner Ohoka Punter should be a major improver and in the mix.

My Field Marshal, who finished second in the Len Smith Mile at Menangle a fortnight ago, has drawn alongside Soho Tribeca in gate ten.

Meanwhile, Ohoka Punter, who finished fourth when first-up at Albion Park last week, 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 added. "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."
