Tough Boss capable of Futurity win

Mighty Boss - Darryl Sherer

Trainer Mick Price confirmed Mighty Boss (Not A Single Doubt) will continue on the plotted path for him - second-up into Saturday's Gr.1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) - after emerging unscathed from his
luckless Orr Stakes run.

The Caulfield Guineas winner was beaten less than a length into seventh in the Orr behind Hartnell, and Price said the son of Not A Single Doubt was in good order to continue on his merry way towards peaking third-up in the Gr,1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington.

"He's a tough horse, and I think he's pulled up really well," Price said on Tuesday.

"He had a few quiet days, one of the days he had a swim, and he bounced back well.

"He worked on the steeple grass last Saturday morning, and worked well. He worked with Holy Snow this morning on the Polytrack. He worked super. He came back in and had a little pigroot after he galloped, so he will definitely be accepted with and the plan is to run."

Price conceded he wasn't the only trainer ruing a luckless Orr run, but said he felt the Futurity could potentially be more winnable than the year's first Group One.

"He was in good condition to run well in the 1400-metre Orr," Price explained.

"I suppose him and Single Gaze you could make a case for them possibly having won, along with a couple of others.

"I'm aware it's a Group One weight-for-age race, but taking a line through his first effort, I thought it was excellent, and certainly if he had have won, I'd have been fronting him up again.

"He's going to take his place, just need to draw a gate, have a bit of luck in running, no traffic and I'm sure he'll be competitive again.

He added, on the strength of the Futurity noms: "I saw a few holes in it.

"Obviously Brave Smash was a very good run - Tosen Stardom was a forgive run - so I'll keep my eye on them.

"It's a Group One WFA, if they're going to front up, it'll be a good race regardless.

"I'm really happy with my colt, and I think 1400m around here at Caulfield, he is capable of winning a race like that."

Mighty Boss was bred by The Sunlight Trust and was purchased by Price for $180,000 out of Curraghmore's 2016 NZB Premier draft. - racing.com
