GLEN Boss is never one to be short of confidence but he believes he is a live chance of winning a second Wagga Gold Cup on Friday.
Boss will team up with Queanbeyan trainer Joe Cleary as both men look to add to their collection of Wagga feature race victories.
Boss steered Sainthood to victory in the 2010 Gold Cup and will return to Wagga for the first time since.
Cleary won the Town Plate in 2003 with Ta Ta Tatiana.
Boss has watched the replays of Landlocked’s last two victories and believes he is riding a live chance.
“His form’s solid, as soon as he gets to this trip he really comes into his own,” Boss said.
“He looks like a pretty uncomplicated horse to ride and he’s in form at the right time.
“He drops to 54.5 kilograms from a pretty decent draw, he’s flying at the moment so you would have to have him in your top three.”
Boss believes Gyspy Diamond is clearly the horse to beat.
Boss said he has ridden ‘several’ group one wins for good friend Gerry Harvey and was happy to come to Wagga to ride for him.
