Glen Boss expects a filly he first rode to victory at Caulfield earlier this year can announce herself as a genuine Thousand Guineas threat at the same track on Saturday.

Boss will be aboard the Mick Kent-trained The Huntress in Saturday’s Group Two Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) and the jockey rates the filly as “a sleeper” for next month’s Group One feature for fillies.

The Huntress resumed with a second to Gregers at Moonee Valley last month with Craig Williams aboard, but Boss is back on for Saturday’s race and is expecting her to prove hard to beat.

“I’ll tell you what, she’s a bit of a sleeper,” Boss said.

“I trialled her before her first-up run and I said to Mick that she was going to really need her first-up run.

“She peeled out to come and challenge Gregers and then you could see her just blow out the last bit.

“Gregers is one of the benchmark fillies and I thought her run was terrific behind her.”

The only time Boss has ridden The Huntress in a race was a Listed victory over 1200m at Caulfield in late April.

The Group One Thousand Guineas (1600m) is on October 16.

Boss has good chances on the undercard to Saturday’s Group One Underwood Stakes including Mr O’Ceirin in the Naturalism Stakes.

He rates him one of his best rides for the day and isn’t concerned the stayer has drawn an outside gate because the on-pacer isn’t that quick in his first 100m.

“If you draw inside you actually have to ride him to hold your spot but from out there all you have to do is sit on him and he just rolls forward. And he’s happier that way,” Boss said.

The main event is the Underwood Stakes and while Boss doubts whether Puissance De Lune can beat Atlantic Jewel over the 1800m at this stage of his preparation, he expects him to run well.

What Boss is confident of is that he’s learned from the Makybe Diva Stakes where he said he exposed Puissance De Lune too early which left him a “sitting shot” for Foreteller who grabbed him on the line.

“I’m a hard task master on myself and I looked at that as a pretty ordinary ride, and I don’t make mistakes twice,” Boss said.

“Never have. Never will.”
