Glen Boss has reported that Melbourne Cup favourite Puissance De Lune has pulled up well after trialling at Ballart this morning.

On a busy Saturday morning, Boss flew via helicopter from Melbourne to Ballart to partner Puissance De Lune in the 1000m trial on the Ballarat course proper before returning to prepare for Memsie Stakes Race Day at Caulfield.

“Just trialled, Big Grey. ALL GOOD. he looks and felt amazing,” Boss posted on twitter.

“A big thanks to Ballarat Turf Club. Very much appreciated.re Course proper trial,” Boss also tweeted.

Trainer Darren Weir had sent Puissance De Lune to his Warrnambool stables after the grey won first up in the Group 2 $220,000 Back To Caulfield P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield two weeks ago but brought him back to his Ballarat base for today’s workout.

Puissance De Lune thrives on beach work at Warrnambool, but Weir organised a trial at Ballarat to keep the stable star primed for his next assignment in the Group 1 $350,000 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on September 7.

Puissance De Lune is the reigning $6.50 favourite for the Group 1 $6.2m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington and will go to the first Tuesday in November via the Group 1 $3m Sportingbet Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 26.

The Shamardal six year old is also well in contention in the Cox Plate market and is on the second line of betting with Kiwi champ It’s A Dundeel at $7.

Trainer Mark Kavanagh’s unbeaten star Atlantic Jewel, who is a short price $1.80 favourite for her comeback in today’s Group 1 $350,000 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield, is the $6.50 Cox Plate favourite.

Boss has five rides at Caulfield today and will be aboard the Kavanagh trained Super Cool who is a $21 chance in the Memsie Stakes.

While Kavanagh is hoping for a successful return to the racetrack for Atlantic Jewel, he anticipates that Super Cool will take a couple of runs to hit his straps.

“I don’t think he’ll be suited by the Memsie as he normally takes a run or two to find form,” Kavanagh told the Herald Sun.

Super Cool showed that he had plenty of class in the Autumn with wins in the Group 2 $220,000 BMW Caulfield Autumn Classic (1800m) at Caulfield on February 23 and the Group 1 $1m Darley Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 9.

Boss is also on second race favourite Vain Queen for John Saddler, roughie Mourasana in the third and Araldo in race seven for Michael Moroney and top fancy Jolie Bay for Team Hawkes in race six.
