Triple Crown winner It's A Dundeel lowered the colours of Atlantic Jewel for the first time with a giant killing victory in the G1 Underwood S. Previously unbeaten from nine starts, Atlantic Jewel was sent out an odds-on favourite in the Group 1 contest and controlled the race from the front but could not match the finishing burst of It's A Dundeel in the closing stages of the 1800-meter event and was just tagged on the line. The victory was It's A Dundeel's fifth Group 1 from only 14 career starts. Jockey James McDonald showed great initiative to roll forward on It's A Dundeel and sit second to the outside of Atlantic Jewel. Dear Demi (Aus) (Dehere) was positioned on the back of Atlantic Jewel in a slowly run race and held on for third.
