Doncaster Mile 2012 Favourite Atlantic Jewel Set To Shine

Former Melbourne Cup winning trainer Mark Kavanagh is looking forward to the race return of his ace filly Atlantic Jewel, the Thousand Guineas winner on track to get back to the business of winning elite levels including next month’s 2012 Doncaster Mile Handicap.

Atlantic Jewel

Atlantic Jewel is tipped to return in about four weeks ahead of a possible run in the 2012 Doncaster Mile

The brilliant daughter of Fastnet Rock out of Zabeel mare Regard has already amassed over $575,000 in prize money in her short five-starts-for-five-wins career to date.

Last seen putting an emphatic seven lengths on her rivals to win the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Derby Day, Atlantic Jewel’s biggest triumph so far was her three-length victory over subsequent Crown Oaks – Australian Guineas winner Mosheen in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m).

“Every time she went around she gobsmacked me by winning with such ease and the further we got out to a trip the longer and easier she won by, and then she would go home and eat her feed quicker and get better,” Kavanagh said praising Atlantic Jewel’s spring campaign.

Kavanagh has been patient with Atlantic Jewel, the untapped filly given plenty of time to recover after she was sent to the paddock suffering soreness after her Wakeful triumph, in turn missing out on her shot in last year’s Crown Oaks and Cox Plate.

While Kavanagh is over the moon with Atlantic Jewel’s progress, the master horseman said she was still about four weeks off resuming and admitted he was yet to schedule a firm first-up run.

“Time is sort of against us,” Kavanagh said.

“She will probably be ready in four or five weeks which makes it a little restrictive what we can run her in.

“If it stops raining you may see her in Sydney, but she’s certainly going as good as ever in the stable.”

Another person excited to see Atlantic Jewel resume is her regular rider Michael Rodd, Rodd reporting to Kavanagh after each recent track session just how promising her upcoming season was looking.

“She’s never been better,” Kavanagh said.

“Each time Michael (Rodd) gets off her he thinks she is little stronger and little better than she was in the spring.

“You wouldn’t believe that could happen.

“Maybe he is getting excited but she is certainly going pretty well.”

Despite the minor injury and lengthy break, the bookies are taking no chances with the upcoming features that could be on Atlantic Jewel’s agenda including the $2 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Royal Randwick on April 21.

In the latest 2012 Doncaster Mile odds at Atlantic Jewel is the firm $6 favourite over last weekend’s beaten Hobartville Stakes favourite upon protest Manawanui ($8).
