Richmond Vale trainer Jason Mackay is confident record-breaker Turbo Thomas will have no trouble producing his best when he races at Bulli for the first time on Saturday night in heats of the group 2 Cyril Rowe Gold Cup (472 metres).
Turbo Thomas will meet defending champion Pindari Express in the first heat of three in the series.
The Mackay-trained black dog won an Australian record 17 consecutive races at TAB tracks, dominating predominantly at Maitland and The Gardens, before a fourth at Wentworth Park on January 15.
He has since won two in a row at Maitland and will have box one for his Cyril Rowe Gold Cup qualifier.
"He can certainly draw a box,'' Mackay told thedogs.com.au.
Turbo Thomas has won 19 of 21 starts, for $34,755 in stakes, and is undefeated from box one in seven attempts.
Mackay has opted not to trial Turbo Thomas at Bulli but he was unfazed.
"Turbo Thomas will go into Saturday's race without having seen Bulli but it won't worry him,'' Mackay said.
"Wherever I have taken him, he has gone as fast in his first look as he has done in subsequent appearances, so all courses come alike to him.
"Turbo Thomas has won four races over 450m at Maitland, a roomy track like Bulli, and Saturday's race is only 22m longer so it's all good.''
Mackay will also have Black Top champion and 2018 Maitland Cup winner Aston Duke in box three of heat two.
The veteran has 29 wins in 88 starts for $208,896 in prizemoney.
