Saddle Question

Just bought myself a fancy new saddle for my newly acquired bike (Selle Italia SLR Boost Endurance Superflow). I'm still a newbie to road biking.

Stupidly I didn't take a pic or make a note of the old saddle position.

I'm just in the process of nailing down the correct position with the new saddle. The 1st ride after swapping over I felt like I kept sliding forward and my palms felt more pressure after an hour so I made some adjustments and my second ride felt better but I'm not entirely happy. It might sound like a silly question but I'm wondering how you determine whether you are sitting in the correct spot on the saddle. There seems to be just over a thumbs width of saddle behind my bum when sitting on it. Does this sound right or should my bum be flush with the end of the saddle or does it just differ from person?
