Wet 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes No Problem for Black Caviar

Unbeaten superstar Black Caviar may have never raced on anything worse than a dead track but one of the people who knows her best is confident she will handle any conditions she encounters in Saturday week’s 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

Jockey Luke Nolen is confident Black Caviar will handle a potential wet track at Royal Ascot

Jockey Luke Nolen has ridden the super mare in 18 of 21 starts and he said the possibility of a wet track is not likely to cause Black Caviar any problems.

“A genuine wet track, as long as they are getting fully in it, I don’t see it being a great issue at all,” Nolen said.

“We’re very much managing her at this stage and I genuinely think yield in the ground, so long as it’s not bottomless, I don’t see it being a major issue at all.”

The Bel Esprit five-year-old arrived at Ascot last week and is in fine condition ahead of Saturday week’s race where she will attempt to extend her winning streak to 22 victories.

Leading trainer Peter Moody and the rest of the Black Caviar team have left no stone unturned in their bid to conquer Royal Ascot, with the race being the result of 12 months of planning.

Nolen is confident the prestigious Royal Ascot track will suit the champion who will be racing at her pet distance of 1200 metres.

“I think Ascot will play to her strengths being a slightly tougher straight six [furlongs] than the one we are accustomed to at home,” Nolen said.

“It’s a testing six and I really do think it will play to her strengths.”

It is not yet clear who exactly will be lining up against the world’s best sprinter and while Nolen said he respects the potential opposition, he has no doubt he will be riding the horse to beat.

“”I do respect the opposition,” Nolen said.

“I’ve watched Bated Breath and a few others on the tapes but I’ve got a great deal of faith in the mare I’m riding.”
