In a field of just 5 horse, after the scratching of Green Moon, Atlantic Jewel sat comfortably in fourth as the race was run in single file before easily moving to the front into the straight to win by 4 lengths from Foreteller and stablemate Super Cool.

“I thought that it would be a bit of a tactical nightmare but it just went to script didn’t it,” trainer Mark Kavanagh said after the race.

“She just left them behind like she can and it was a good effort.”

Today’s win makes it 10 from 11 starts for Atlantic Jewel, with one second.

The new glamour mare of Australian racing is now on target for the 2013 Cox Plate on Saturday October 27 at Moonee Valley.

“I am quite happy with where she is right now and I will tune her right up now and she will be spot-on for the Cox Plate,” Kavanagh said.
