Scans For Commanding Jewel Today
Exceptional Gr1-winning racemare Commanding Jewel will undergo scans today, reports AAP. The Leon Corstens-trained half-sister to superstar mare Atlantic Jewel appears to have "pulled a muscle behind" according to her trainer, and today's scan will determine the future of her Spring campaign. Either way, Corstens made the decision yesterday that Commanding Jewel will miss next Saturday's Gr1 Rupert Clarke Stakes. Off the track for nearly a year, the Gr1 One Thousand Guineas heroine won second-up in the Gr2 Let's Elope Stakes with a surging finish that suggested bigger prizes are in store.
