No Rose for 2012 Thousand Guineas Bound Jewel

Connections of the Leon Corstens-trained Commanding Jewel, a three-quarter sister to injured dual Group 1 winner Atlantic Jewel, are firmly focused on the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival’s Thousand Guineas 2012 and will not take the weekend winner to Sydney for the Golden Rose.

Commanding Jewel

Commanding Jewel will target the 2012 Thousand Guineas after winning at Moonee Valley

The daughter of Commands out of Zabeel mare Regard maintained her undefeated status on Saturday backing up from her debut win over 957m at Swan Hill on August 13 with an impressive effort at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

Going out as the odds-on $1.85 favourite in the first, the $80,000 Mitchelton Wines Plate (1200m) for three-year-old fillies, the Damien Oliver-ridden Commanding Jewel beat home Flying Hostess ($12) by a full length while the David Hayes-trained Mama’s Choice ($10) finished a further one and three quarter lengths away third.

It was a victory that caught the attention of Hall of Fame jockey Oliver who was quick to make comparisons between Commanding Jewel and Mark Kavanagh’s unbeaten mare Atlantic Jewel who he rode to victory at Caulfield back in September last year.

“She settled nicely in behind them and she showed a great turn of foot,” Oliver said.

“She was going well enough to ease her way out (on the turn), she quickened up nicely and had control of the race on the turn and she won without being tested too much.”

“She’s probably a little bit more switched on at the same time because, Atlantic Jewel, she looked around and did a bit wrong.

“The thing about Atlantic Jewel was, she kept improving, whereas this filly pretty much does it right now.”

Despite the hype surrounding the obviously talented youngster who is fast living up to her breeding, connections are not tempted to take her to Sydney for the season’s opening Group 1 – the $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 15.

Instead Commanding Jewel will race on in Victoria heading towards the $50,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse on October 17.

“She’s done a fabulous job,” Corstens said on Saturday.

“I knew she could win but I was still worried. I’m glad to get that one out of the way.

“Now we’ll start looking for another nice race for her.

“I’d like to think that she will be a Thousand Guineas chance because that would really enhance her pedigree.

“I’m hoping she’ll get the mile and she looks like she should because she’s a very athletic type of filly.”

In the latest Thousand Guineas odds at bookmakers around the country Commanding Jewel is currently the $6 second favourite behind Nechita ($4), also undefeated after the daughter of Fastnet Rock enjoyed a smart first-up win in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm on Saturday.
