27/07/02 Court of Jewels Sparkles at Cheltenham
Court of Jewels, a stunning looking entire by Danehill, has continued his great recent form by scoring a sparkling two length win in the listed Vanellus Stakes (1450m) at Cheltenham in Adelaide today.

Trained by Lindsay Park’s Tony McEvoy, the four-year-old was ridden to his two length victory by the stable’s leading rider Simon Price.

Today’s win was Court of Jewel’s second straight win at Cheltenham. He scored at the Port track three weeks earlier, over the slightly shorter 1313 metres.

The beautifully bred individual was today facing a huge class rise from his last start Class One win, but he took the class rise in his stride, winning easily from in the flying gelding Ikaros, while Serien finished third.

"Court of Jewels is a vastly improved galloper and his win today was quite impressive," McEvoy said.

"The way he quickened toward the end of the race was great," the leading trainer added.

As well as facing a significant rise in class, Court of Jewels also had to contend with the outside barrier in the field of thirteen.

Court of Jewels, who races in the colours of the brilliant filly Elegant Fashion, is being aimed toward the listed Balaklava Cup (1600m) next month, a race Lindsay Park has a great affinity with.
