Glen Boss Likely To Ride Kelinni in 2012 Melbourne Cup

Star jockey Glen Boss is likely to ride today’s 2012 Lexus Stakes winner Kelinni in the 2012 Melbourne Cup after his mount Gatewood finished sixth.

Reports surfaced quickly that the in-form hoop, who last weekend piloted Ocean park to victory in the Cox Plate, is set to be booked to ride the Chris Waller-trained stayer in Australia’s biggest race.

Kelinni produced a strong performance in the Lexus today to beat home a number of more fancied rivals in a performance that suggested he will be suited to the extra distance offered in the 3200-metre Melbourne Cup.

The five-year-old gelding was blocked for a run early in the straight but when the gap opened he pounced and powered through the line to claim a half-length win from Dare To Dream and Exceptionally.

Trainer Chris Waller was delighted with the performance and is expecting the import to relish the bigger staying trip on Tuesday.

“It’s a great feeling to be part of the race,” Waller said.

“And it’s (the Lexus) has proven to be a pretty good form race for the Cup. He’s been the model of consistency running a good second in a group 1 (The Metropolitan) last start.

“Two miles shouldn’t be a problem at all.”

If Boss does assume the mount on Kelinni he will be chasing his fourth Melbourne Cup victory, having ridden champion Makybe Diva in her three consecutive victories from 2003-05.

Boss did not ride in last year’s Melbourne Cup, with his most recent ride in 2010 when he rode Illustrious Blue who finished ninth.
