Unbeaten filly Atlantic Jewel may go into next month’s Thousand Guineas without another run after an impressive victory at Caulfield.

The inquisitive three-year-old appeared to read every sponsor’s sign on the infield as she pricked her ears and raced away to a 2-3/4 length victory in Saturday’s BMW Handicap (1400m).

Our Miss Jones and Sharnee Rose ran home well for near last to finish second and third respectively to the star filly who won her two other starts at Geelong and Moonee Valley.

Atlantic Jewel is favourite for the Group One Thousand Guineas (1600m) on October 12 and trainer Mark Kavanagh said she was every bit as good as stablemate Celebrity Girl who was unbeaten until last week when relegated to fourth on protest in the Guineas Prelude at Caulfield.

He said Celebrity Girl, who is also Thousand Guineas-bound, would contest next Sunday’s Group Two Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) at Flemington but was happy with the condition of Atlantic Jewel who continues to put on weight between runs.

“If she keeps improving in herself she (Atlantic Jewel) might go to the Thousand Guineas without another run,” Kavanagh said.

“She gives us a pretty good feel and we are very, very excited at this stage,” Kavanagh said.

“She hasn’t raced in any black-type races and hasn’t raced against the best three-year-old fillies at this carnival yet but it will be interesting when she does.

“We have to keep a bit of a lid on it but I rate her up there.”

Damien Oliver replaced the suspended Michael Rodd on the filly and said she had great acceleration and had her rivals covered quickly on Saturday.

“She will improve but she doesn’t have to get much better,” Oliver said.
