Attack The Line will make his racing debut in the 1Print Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday, but trainer Brent Stanley is already eyeing races like the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) with the rising three-year-old.

Attack The Line made his first public appearance with a comfortable victory in a barrier trial over 850 metres at Tatura on June 25 and he has done enough in his jump outs and track work to suggest to Stanley that he could be competitive at the highest level of racing during the 2015 Spring Racing Carnival.

“He is a lovely horse,” Stanley told Racing Ahead.

“He just had a soft trial there and he had another jump out at Bendigo to prepare him for Saturday.

“He has a bit of a strenuous preparation if he aims up to what he has shown on the track.

“He will have a couple of runs and maybe head to Sydney and head towards the Golden Rose and then go towards the Caulfield Guineas hopefully.

“From what he has shown at the moment he is the best horse that I have put a saddle on since I have been training.

“He has just done everything right through his preparation, he is a lovely horse and whatever you work him with he canters beside them.

“He has shown in his trials and his jump outs that he is just a professional and a pleasure to have around the stable.”

Attack The Line was purchased for $210,000 at the 2014 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale after Stanley immediately selected the yearling as the standout colt at the sale.

Stanley said that Attack The Line had shown that he was ready to make his racing debut as a two-year-old, but he opted to give the son of Wanted more time to mature and is hopeful that it will pay off during his spring campaign.

“For me he was the standout colt at the sale,” Stanley said.

“He is the complete package, he has a great barrel shoulder hindquarters, he has a really good horses head and he has an amazing stride on him.

“Just walking out he has a great presence about him.

“He was doing everything right to race at two, but I have had a fair few Wanted’s and they work good for you, but maturity lacks as two-year-olds and I think they are better with a bit of time up their sleeves.”

Attack The Line is currently available at 1Print Handicap odds of $3.90 with Ladbrokes and he is on the second line of betting behind Team Hawkes-trained Top Me Up ($3).
