Black Caviar is in great condition heading into tomorrow's 2012 Goodwood

Luke Nolen, who has been on board the champion mare in 17 of her 20 starts, rode her during trackwork this week and has declared her a much-improved horse from the one that cantered to a 4.5 length victory two weeks ago in the Robert Sangster Stakes.

“The work was first class and anyone who goes to Morphettville on Saturday won’t be disappointed,” Nolen said.

“I am very much looking forward to Saturday.

“She was nowhere near her top first-up and she has just made that really nice improvement second-up.”

The super mare is chasing an 11th Group 1 win and will assume her regular position as odds-on favourite, currently paying $1.04 to beat her eight rivals.

Nolen will again be in the saddle when she carries 57kg from barrier eight and he is happy the barrier position will allow her to avoid any trouble as she attempts to keep her unbeaten streak in tact.

“I can do whatever I want from there and I can keep her out of trouble, more importantly,” Nolen said.

“She is a very easy horse to ride and I will keep her happy and hopefully she will keep everyone there happy as well.”

A sell-out crowd of 30,000 people are expected to flock to the Morphetville track to see the champion mare in what will be a high-class show of horse racing.

Not one of her rivals comes close in the betting market, with Stirling Grove, Go The Knuckle, Catapulted and We’re Gonna Rock all on the next line of betting at $31.00.

It will jump as the seventh race on the Morphetville card in what will be a bumper day of racing in the South Australian capital that also includes the SA Fillies Classic, The Jansz and the RA Lee Stakes.
