World News – UA – Boss makes predictions for Melbourne Cup


Kate Watts @ katewatts_


Glen Boss has been on fire this spring both in the saddle and with his predictions, and the champion jockey has once again made bold predictions

The three-time Melbourne Cup winner was convinced he predicted his Sir Dragonet mount would be the hardest to beat if the track got wet for Cox Plate last Saturday

A week earlier, he had rocked the top two of Everest, predicting that it was a two-horse race between the eventual Classic Legend winner and his Bivouac ride, who finished first respectively and second

Boss is hoping to win his fourth Melbourne Cup next week with Sir Dragonet, and although he believes Camelot’s son will be tough to beat, he has another international in mind

« Anthony Van Dyck, I thought he was exceptional in the Caulfield Cup, » he told RSN 927 on Monday

« I know he has a lot of weight, but I have a lot of respect for him

It’s a big call from champion jockey seen Anthony Van Dyck as the topweight wears 585kg horseless having carried over 58kg until victory in the Melbourne Cup since 1972, when the metric scale has been adopted

But Boss certainly knows a little about winning a Melbourne Cup as the highest weight, Makybe Diva is one of only three race winners since 1972 to have carried over 57kg while winning the race, when she had carried 58 kg in 2005

The 87-time Group 1-winning jockey says he is still extremely confident that Sir Dragonet is a good chance to give him a fourth Melbourne Cup victory, ten days after winning him a fourth Cox Plate

« He obviously has a huge aerobic capacity, which gives you a lot of confidence for the future, because he’s a very relaxed animal, we can see what he’s capable of now and when you put all of these things together. , he’s a great racehorse »
