Cox Plate 2012 Preparations Underway for Atlantic Jewel

Superstar youngster Atlantic Jewel is back in work ahead of a spring campaign that is likely to feature a tilt at the prestigious $3 million 2012 Cox Plate (2040m).

The unbeaten daughter of Fastnet Rock made an outstanding return from injury in the autumn when she produced dominant performances to win the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes and the Group 1 All Aged Stakes.

She came through the impressive performances unscathed, leaving trainer Mark Kavanagh excited about her spring hopes in the Australasian weight-for-age championship.

“We do get excited about her and it was nice to see her back in the autumn after having that injury,” Kavanagh said.

“This time she went to the paddock at the top of her game so she should come back OK.”

Currently rated a $4.00 favourite in the early Cox Plate market, the Melbourne-based horse is yet to fully stretch out but has pleased Kavanagh so far.

“It’s still early stages but everything is going along OK,” Kavanagh said.

Undefeated from seven career starts, the winner of more than $900,000 in prize money will begin more testing work in the coming weeks provided the weather plays in her favour.

“She did some three-quarter pace work on Saturday,” Kavanagh said.

“The way the weather is at the moment, I just hope it dries out a bit to get a track to give her a couple of good gallops on.”

Rated as one of the most exciting prospects in Australian racing, Atlantic Jewel showed her ability to handle the Cox Plate distance (2040m) in the early stages of her three-year-old career when she won by seven lengths in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) at Flemington last October.

She also signalled her readiness to step up in open company when she beat a quality field of sprinters, including Sydney star Rain Affair, in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes in April.
