Puissance De Lune hasnow cemented himself as the new favourite for the 2013 Melbourne Cup.

Jockey Glen Boss was aboard Puissance De Lune for his 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes win and was at a loss for words after the race was run.

“That was probably the performance of the four days over the Flemington Carnival without a doubt,” Boss declared.

“This horse gave me the feel of no horse I’ve ridden for a long time.


“Oh my God, he’s got some acceleration. He’s come a long way very quickly.”

Boss is already confident Puissance De Lune can win the 2013 Melbourne Cup, predicting he will once again be in the winner’s circle after winning the $6 million race.

“It’ll be you and me next year, first Tuesday of November,” he said to the interviewer.

Trainer Darren Weir was ecstatic with Puissance De Lune’s winning performance.

“It was terrific wasn’t it?” Weir exclaimed.

“He’s won well again.

“The horse is in great order. He’s a horse racing really well.”

Weir does not feel that a Melbourne Cup win would be beyond Puissance De Lune after witnessing today’s 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes performance.

“The dream might be alive again here,” he said.
