Big race jockey Glen Boss has no doubts that the horse of the moment, Puissance De Lune, will have no problems running a strong 3200m of the Melbourne Cup after producing a sensational first up win in the Group 2 $220,000 Back To Caulfield P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

Boss continues to up his opinion of the grey import and could not hide his excitement after the Darren Weir trained stallion produced a last to first win at his first run since dead heating with Budriguez in the Group 2 $220,000 Blamey Stakes (1600m) at Flemington in the Autumn.

“Behind that mare (Makybe Diva) and So You Think this horse is up there with the best horses I’ve ever ridden,” Boss said.

“He’s a genuine superstar.

“I can’t express my words about him.”

“He’s a horse with a great turn of foot. Like all the good ones, he’s got a great set of lungs, a great temperament, and I think the longer the trip, the better turn of speed you’ll see. He’ll be able to get into a rhythm and then unleash,” Boss told The Daily Telegraph.

“He ran 2600m pretty easily and ran through the line that day.”

“There will always be a slight query over 3200m because he hasn’t run it, but the way he won the Queen Elizabeth, he felt like he could have run another half lap.”

Boss rode Makybe Diva to three Melbourne Cup victories as well as a win in the 2005 Cox Plate and was also aboard the mighty So You Think in one of his two Cox Pate wins.

Puissance De Lune maintains a firm grip on favouritism at $5.50 for the Group 1 $6.2m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 5 while he is sharing the top spot for the Group 1 $3m Sportingbet Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 26 at $6.50 with Atlantic Jewel and It’s A Dundeel.

Boss is getting very enthusiastic and is finding it hard to hide his excitement looking ahead to the major Spring Carnival races.

“There’s that feeling of anxiousness, like you’ve got a present you can’t yet unwrap,” Boss said.

“When you get anxious it’s because you know something is there. It was the same feeling I got with the mare.”

The Group 1 $350,000 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 31 has been mentioned as the starting points for Atlantic Jewel and It’s A Dundeel with both camps not committing to a definite Spring starting date.

The unbeaten Atlantic Jewel is well on the way to resuming after a long layoff due to a tendon injury and was an impressive winner in a jump out down the Flemington straight last week.

Atlantic Jewel is undefeated from seven race starts and trainer Mark Kavanagh has had to nurse her back to health for her first run since winning the Group 1 $400,000 Ticketek All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick during the Autumn of 2012.

While this year’s Sydney Autumn Carnival star It’s A Dundeel is ready to cross the Tasman again and head to Melbourne after pleasing connections in recent track gallops.

It’s A Dundeel took out the three year old triple crown with wins in three Group 1s, the $550,000 Hyland Race Colours Royal Randwick Guineas (1600m) at Warwick Farm, the $500,000 M. J. Bale Rosehill Guineas (2000m) at Rosehill and the $1.5m David Jones Australian Derby (2400m) at Randwick.
