ONE-time Golden Slipper hopeful Bossdon City burst back on to the scene to capture the $50,000 Flat Knacker (900m) yesterday.
Trainer Brett Cavanough completed a feature race double following Niblick’s dramatic gold cup win.
Bossdon City scored an impressive debut victory at Rosehill in 2011 as a two-year-old but didn’t measure up for the Golden Slipper or the Blue Diamond.
Even more frustrating for Cavanough and connections was injury threatened to derail a once promising career.
But the defining moment came in England last winter when Cavanough accompanied old mate Peter Moody to England with Black Caviar.
“Bossdon City was in the paddock and was never meant to come back,” he said.
“You just have to go to England and look inside the time capsule because all the information is there.
“I think I will be going back.
“He had a hind leg injury we couldn’t treat in Australia.
“But we just worked out what we had to do and here we are.”
Bossdon City enhanced his excellent first-up record of three wins from three starts by scoring in his first start since an unplaced effort at Caulfield last December.
But the speedster won his previous start at Gundagai two weeks earlier.
Bossdon City scored by a head from the fast charging Magic Shag, who is also trained at Albury, by Kevin Hanley, and was coming off a Corowa Cup day win.
The third placegetter was Kembla Grange visitor Shiso, 1½ lengths away third.
Last year’s winner Simmo was fourth and $3 favourite Chinzia was sixth.
