New 2012 Doncaster Mile Betting Favourite Likely

Futures markets for the Doncaster Mile 2012 at Royal Randwick next month are set for a shake-up with the current top elects Atlantic Jewel and Mosheen likely to bypass the handicap clash.

Atlantic Jewel

Thousand Guineas winner Atlantic Jewel is unlikely to be ready for the 2012 Doncaster Mile next month

In the latest markets for the $2 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile Handicap (1600m), set to run at Randwick on April 21, Mark Kavanagh’s Thousand Guineas winning filly Atlantic Jewel is the narrow $7 favourite over Australian – Rosehill Guineas double winner Mosheen ($7.50) through

With Atlantic Jewel unlikely to be ready for the testing mile feature in time, and Mosheen more likely to step up in distance to tackle either the $1.5 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) on April 14 or the $550,000 Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks (2400m) on Doncaster Day, the bookies will have a reshuffle on their hands.

Former Melbourne Cup winning trainer Kavanagh made the announcement that his Fastnet Rock filly Atlantic Jewel, last seen winning the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) by a convincing seven lengths at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day before which she put three lengths on Mosheen to win the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield, was still a while off a race return.

“She’s not ready to go back to the racetrack yet,” he said.

“She’ll have another jump out on Friday and probably race a fortnight after that.

“Things are going well, but it is a time factor and then there’s the rain.

“If it continues to be too wet in Sydney, I’m not sure what we’ll do.”

Kavanagh named the $1 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on April 14 or the $175,000 Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) against her own sex at the same meeting as possible first-up runs for Atlantic Jewel, but she would then have to back-up just seven days later if she was to make the Doncaster Mile field.

Current third favourite for the Doncaster at a quote of $11 is Manawanui, Ron Leemon’s Golden Rose hero having faded in the finish last Saturday to cross one and a half lengths off Mosheen in fifth in the Randwick Guineas.

If connections keep to a Doncaster path with the Oratorio gelding, and without the brilliant Mosheen in the picture, Manawanui is likely to be installed as the new favourite.

Other top-rated chances in the Doncaster Mile odds at include Epsom Handicap winner Secret Admirer ($13) who runs in the $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill this Saturday, the Chris Waller-trained Shoot Out ($13) last seen winning the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes over the Warwick Farm mile, fellow Coolmore hopeful Streama ($14) and surprise Randwick Guineas runner-up Said Com ($16).
