SIR BOSS has continued to improve this season and is taken to land his hat-trick at the expense of Run For Ede's and Mubrook. The selection seems to like the Welsh air as he has landed back to back race at Chepstow and Ffos Las. Each time he has won with considerable ease and although he is now nine pounds higher in the weights since his last win he is still on the up grade and can win again before the handicapper gets to him. Run For Ede's has already won three times this season and is only eleven pounds higher since she won the first of those. She has been well placed by her trainer and she ran really well behind Munsef at Ascot last time out and cannot be ruled out of this contest so warrants respect. This will be step up in grade for Sir Boss but he deserves his chance and is taken to succeed once again.
