Clear Skies for Black Caviar – Diamond Jubilee Stakes 2012

Poor conditions will be no excuse for wonder mare Black Caviar who will make her much awaited overseas debut in the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m) at Royal Ascot in just a matter of hours (12:45am AEST).

Fears that the world’s best sprinter would make her step on to the international stage in heavy conditions have been allayed with the sun shining at the famous British Racecourse.

Showers over the past couple of days have the track rated as similar to slow by Australian standards but that is far better than initially predicted.

There were concerns the unbeaten superstar may have to race for the first time in heavy conditions but with that no longer an issue, trainer Peter Moody is confident she is ready to put on a show for the world.

“She’s fine, I’m fine, we’re ready,” Moody said.

Thousands of Australians have travelled to Royal Ascot to cheer on the champion five-year-old who is attempting to score a 22nd consecutive victory.

The journey has been more than 12 months in the making and Moody said earlier this week she is at the top of her game.

“She’s the fittest I’ve had her in the past 24 months. Her work has been very pleasing since arriving here. I couldn’t be happier,” Moody said.

The daughter of Bel Esprit has drawn barrier 15, which is considered to be an advantage late in the week on the Royal Ascot straight.

Currently paying $1.15 at, her nearest rival is French mare Moonlight Cloud who is being offered at $10.00.
