Unknown Rivals for Black Caviar

Not even trainer Peter Moody knows who exactly will be lining up against champion mare Black Caviar in Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m) at Royal Ascot.

While Black Caviar has created headline after headline on her way to her first overseas start, only a couple of horses have been confirmed as starters to take on the world’s best sprinter.

Moody said he was intrigued as to who will be named in the final field for the feature sprint but is being respectful ahead of what will be Black Caviar’s toughest test to date.

“I’m struggling to get a name, let alone a handle on them,” he said.

One horse who is likely to be there is French mare Moonlight Cloud who has shown plenty of promise in her young career.

From 13 starts the daughter of Invincible Spirit has won six times and is fresh off a two-length win at Group 3 level on June 2.

While Moody is respectful of the wonder mare’s potential opponents, he is confident that if nothing untoward happens Black Caviar will record a 22nd straight victory.

“She’s stepping out of her comfort zone but we’ve done that a couple of times at home,” Moody said.

“We’ve done some unusual things at times and she’s come up trumps and hopefully she can continue in that mould.”

British sprinter Bated Breath has been named in the field for tonight’s King’s Stand Stakes to take on Australian mare Ortensia but trainer Roger Charlton has hinted at a change to take on Black Caviar if the track is wet.

The Dansili five-year-old has won six times from 14 starts and is coming off a win in the Group 2 Temple Stakes.

Other potential rivals for Black Caviar include last year’s winner Society Rock and Bahraini gelding Krypton Factor.

Krypton Factor has won three of his last five starts including the Group 1 Golden Shaheen ahead of Rocket Man and Lucky Nine in late March.
