Royal Ascot Track to Suit Black Caviar

Black Caviar jockey Luke Nolen believes conditions at Royal Ascot will suit the wonder mare in Saturday’s Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m).

After undergoing trackwork on the world’s best sprinter yesterday morning, Nolen assumed his first race ride of the week, piloting British gelding Medicean Man to fourth in the King’s Stand Stakes.

Many have questioned Black Caviar’s ability to handle the undulating Royal Ascot surface but Nolen is confident the champion five-year-old will perform to her usual high standards.

“The track itself, it seems to drain very well with the surface they have here,” Nolen said.

“It’s perfect that surface, that’s going to suit her down to the ground.

“She’d be very capable wet but as long as she gets a footing in it, she’s not going to have a drama come Saturday.”

Having ridden the daughter of Bel Esprit in 18 of her 21 starts, Nolen knows Black Caviar better than most and after taking her through her paces, he believes she is ready to record a 22nd straight victory.

“She worked strongly, very stylishly, we’re very happy with her.”

“She pulled up very good.

“She probably didn’t even need to do it, they way she’s come through it.”

The champion mare will assume her usual position as odds-on favourite in Saturday’s Diamond Jubilee Stakes but some English bookmakers have lengthened her odds after fellow Australian mare Ortensia failed overnight.

After Ortensia laboured on a slow Royal Ascot track to finish mid-field in the King’s Stand Stakes, English bookmakers immediately reacted and many are now offering Black Caviar at odds of $1.35.

It is the biggest price the unbeaten superstar has been at in a long time, having been simply dominant on her way to 11 Group 1 victories and more than $5.7 million in prize money.
