Suave Stuey Lombo is one of the most improved pacers in New South Wales and owner Zac Cornell has his heart set on having a crack at the New Zealand Cup on the second Tuesday in November. Suave Stuey Lombo is trained by Hunter Valley horseman Shane Tritton and his recent performances at Tabcorp Park Menangle suggest he will be competitive in anything that he competes in.

"Suave Stuey Lombo fell asleep in front at Menangle on Saturday night but he ran home very quickly and I think he did everything that was required of him," Cornell said.

"At this stage Shane (Tritton) is planning on taking him back to Menangle again this week with the long range plan of having him in New Zealand for the Ashburton Flying Stakes on October 28th and he might even have another lead up run in a race like the Kaikoura Cup on November 4th."

The son of Bettors Delight has only had one run from a standing start and galloped out but Cornell believes that it won't be a problem going forward.

"The standing start run was before I bought him but speaking with Shane he thinks he is quiet enough and it shouldn't be a problem but obviously he is going to have to do plenty of practice before we go."

"The plan is for me to head across to New Zealand and stay with the horse for the entire trip while Shane will travel between New Zealand and Australia because he will be very busy attempting to get Mach Beauty into the Miracle Mile by competing in the lead up races like the Newcastle Mile."

Cornell has confirmed that Lauren Panella will be driving Suave Stuey Lombo in New Zealand.

"Definitely, Lauren will be flying across to New Zealand for his races, he goes really well for her as he showed when he broke the track record at Albion Park when he won the Sunshine Sprint."
