Trainer Saeed bin Suroor says he has been pleased with Thunder Snow ahead of his outing in America at Belmont Park.
The five-year-old has won prize money of around £12million in his career and regularly runs in America.
The Irish-born horse had an unhappy outing in the 2017 Kentucky Derby but bounced back at the Breeders' Cup Classic last year finishing third, and bin Suroor says he is ready for a tilt a the Metropolitan Handicap on Saturday.
"He travelled well to New York so all is good so far," said Bin Suroor.
"He did his last piece of work on Friday on the Limekilns (in Newmarket) under Kieren Fallon and he was very happy with him - he looks good and is ready to go.
"The trip is a little short for him, it's only a mile and he's better over 10 furlongs, but it is hard to find races for him and he has to run.
"After this we'll keep his options open, but there is a race at Saratoga for him then maybe the Jockey Club in New York before ending the season in the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita.
"He has a chance, I'm happy with him, he's in good form. He always handles the travelling really good and Christophe Soumillon is going over to ride him again."
