Aussie Jewels Sparkling Ahead Of Spring
While undefeated dual Gr1-winning mare Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock-Regard, by Zabeel) had a trial last Friday (with another one due) as part of her slow comeback to racing since going amiss last August, younger half-sibling Commanding Jewel, also a Gr1 winner, is set to have her first start since last October when she lines up in Saturday's Gr3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in Melbourne. Commanding Jewel has looked impressive in her build up to her race return, while Atlantic Jewel has been the subject of considerable interest in early markets for this year's Gr1 Cox Plate (2020m) at Moonee Valley.
