Mark Kavanagh has revealed that Australian Cup winner Super Cool will likely be aimed towards the $2.5M BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 19. A fast-finishing third behind his stable mate in yesterday’s Memsie Stakes at Caulfield, Kavanagh said the past record of three-year-old Australian Cup winners has influenced his thinking in regards to the son of Fastnet Rock.  

“To me he looks like a Caulfield Cup horse,” Kavanagh told TVN’s Racing Review. “History tells you that the three-year-olds that have actually won an Australian Cup; one has won a Melbourne Cup (Saintly) and the other one probably should have in Dulcify.

“He’s a gross a horse; he still had his winter coat and he looked a bit patchy but I think he’ll take a fair bit of benefit out of yesterday’s run.”

Kavanagh nominated the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield for Super Cool's likely second-up run. 

In frightening news for her potential Spring Racing Carnival rivals, Kavanagh also reported that unbeaten superstar Atlantic Jewel is in better condition this morning than before her effortless win in yesterday’s Memsie Stakes.

“She looks a lot tighter and a lot better than she did yesterday morning and she has pulled up well and eaten all of her feed,” he said.

“We’ve always had the big picture in mind with her and we can’t expect to have had her 100% wound up and have her right in October so there was a fair bit of improvement left in her.

 “It’s frightening to say that she has only just really matured as a racehorse.”

Kavanagh said Atlantic Jewel would likely head towards the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 14 but didn't rule out that she could contest the Group 2 Stock Stakes (1600m) against her own sex on the same program.
