Cox Plate favourite Atlantic Jewel will not race this spring because of a tendon problem.

The unbeaten daughter of Fastnet Rock bumped her off-fore leg a couple of weeks ago and a lesion has formed on the leg resulting in trainer Mark Kavanagh aborting the spring preparation.

“Kav is really cut about it,” co-owner Laurie Macri told Fairfax. “It is a disaster in terms of the spring, but with time she will race again.

“It looks like a minimum of three months in the paddock.

“She is just one of those horses that can find a problem and we won’t be taking any risks with her.”

Atlantic Jewel is owned in partnership by Coolmore and has won all seven of her starts, including the Thousand Guineas and All-Aged Stakes.
