"I couldn't be happier with how Suave Stuey Lombo has come through everything that I have thrown at him in the past week and a half, he hasn't missed a beat," Tritton said.
"I flew with him and he handled it like a total professional, he hasn't missed a meal since and has settled in very well at the stables of , he will have his first start at Ashburton next Monday and it is going to be a very strong race by the looks of it so it should be a good guide to see where he is at."
Regular driver flew across to New Zealand last week to drive Suave Stuey Lombo in trackwork and will make more trips across the Tasman in the lead up to the New Zealand Cup.
"Lauren and I will be travelling back and forth quite a bit because the stable has a number of runners engaged but I think it is in the best interests of the stable, the main aim at the moment is to not miss a meeting where I have horses running."
"Suave Stuey Lombo was right up to the mark when he left Australia, he is a horse that can cop plenty of work and he is on the same preparation that he would be on if he was still at home but in saying that I think he will appreciate having the runs at Ashburton and Kaikoura which should have him ready to peak for the New Zealand Cup."
Stablemate Mach Beauty has recovered well from his Menangle defeat and Tritton is looking to give the five year a start at Menangle on Saturday November 2.
"He has pulled up well, the tough run has really helped him but it has been a little bit tough to find him races since, there is a free-for-all at Menangle on the first Saturday in November and that would be a good lead into the Newcastle Mile the following week."
