Unbeaten harness racing youngster Ideal Tyson gives every indication he is ‘one out of the box’.

Successful at his six starts, Ideal Tyson appears to have it all – he can sprint and stay with equal ease.

As such, it appears certain the Gary Elson-trained two-year-old will join past greats as the winner of tomorrow night’s Champagne Stakes at Gloucester Park.

One of Western Australia’s most popular features, the Group Two has been captured by the likes of Chandon, Saab, Talladega, James Matthew and Tricky Styx.

Although drawn awkwardly in barrier five, Ideal Tyson is expected to work his way to the front, which has seen him installed a prohibitive $1.80 favourite.

To be driven by Chris Voak, the son of American Ideal is one of three Elson-trained runners, with the astute mentor also represented by Scoobys Delight and Sprinter.

Although drawn better of the pair in gate four, Scoobys Delight is yet to win from four outings, whereas Sprinter boasts three wins and two placings from five starts.

The son of Mach Three faces a tough task from the outside of the front row.

One of Sprinter’s defeats came behind Rich Yankee, which is trained by Jesse Moore who is no stranger to Champagne Stakes glory.

Triumphant with Nixon Adios in 1979, Moore also captured the feature with Wirrpunda in 2001, All Four Firing in 2002 and Tricky Styx last season.

As for Rich Yankee’s prospects, the colt will have to overcome the outside of the back line with Aiden De Campo in the cart.
