Atlantic Jewel  emerged as the horse to fill the void left by Black Caviar this year with a devastating victory in the Memsie Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday to take her career record to eight wins from as many starts. Mark Kavanagh’s mare hadn’t raced for 16 months due to a tendon injury but produced an awesome display in the first Group One race of the new season and was immediately elevated into outright favouritism for the Cox Plate. The daughter of Fastnet Rock shortened from $6.50 into $3 for the Moonee Valley feature on October 26 following her dominant display first up after being as big $9 in early betting.

With the dominant display of stablemate Atlantic Jewel, Super Cool  has been re-routed to the Caulfield Cup and has been cut for that race after finishing third in the Memsie. The Australian Cup winner firmed from $15 into $11 for the 2400m event at Caulfield but eased from $7 to $9 for the Cox Plate with him now unlikely to line up there.

Fast ‘N’ Rocking  rocketed into favouritism ($6 into $3.80) for the Golden Rose at Rosehill after beating a strong field of three year olds in the McNeil Stakes to break his maiden at the ninth time of asking. Cluster  and Dissident  (both $18-$9) were the other big shorteners for that event after running well in the Run To The Roses, as was Marseille Roulette  ($81-$17) but Sidestep  ($6-$13) and Eurozone  ($6.50-$15) disappointed there and eased considerably for the Golden Rose.
