Leading Jockey Glen Boss will ride Australian Cup winner Super Cool in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday but believes glamour mare Atlantic Jewel is clearly the horse to beat in what is set to be a key form race for the 2013 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Boss will ride Super Cool in a race for the first time this weekend, after regular jockey Michael Rodd elected to stick with Atlantic Jewel, and despite having a high opinion of the four-year-old does not think that he will be able to beat Atlantic Jewel, if she returns to the races in her best form.

“I think that it is a very good race but I think there are very few winning chances,” Boss said on Racing Ahead.

“It really depends on one horse, if Atlantic Jewel turns up she wins.

“I think the only horse that can trouble her is It’s A Dundeel but he is going to need luck at the right time.

“Apart from that I can’t see too many winning chances in the race.”

Although he admits that the Memsie Stakes is Atlantic Jewel’s to lose, Boss has not ruled Super Cool out completely and he is confident the four-year-old will run well if some bad luck strikes the leading pair.

“He is a Fastnet Rock horse and they just keep getting better and better,” Boss said of Super Cool.

“You can see what he did with only three runs under his belt last preparation.

“It maps a bit awkwardly for me from barrier twelve, I just don’t know where I am going to find myself, but I’m sure that he will be very, very strong to the line.

“If It’s A Dundeel is in an awkward spot you know that Super Cool is going to be in clear running and he will be rocking home.”

Super Cool has not faced Atlantic Jewel in an official race but has met It’s A Dundeel on two occasions and finished ahead of the three-year-old Triple Crown winner in both the Group 2 Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m) and Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m).
