On Saturday, the O’Brien stable will be looking to continue their Valley form after 3yo Keano's slashing win last Friday night at the track.

Boss will ride freelance once based permanently in Melbourne and is expected to ride work for a handful of trainers including O’Brien.

During the spring, jockeys to ride winners for the powerful Flemington stable include Damien Oliver, James Winks, Steven Arnold, Danny Nikolic, Dwayne Dunn, Craig Williams and Boss.
