Team Hawkes yesterday confirmed All Too Hard will have his next start there and Moody has said the race would suit Australia’s queen of the turf.

“It’s a terrific race, her record at 1400m is good, she’s one for one,” Moody told a gathering of media in Melbourne.

“It’s a Group 1, weight-for-age. Everything fits the criteria as a race for her.”

The only time Black Caviar has raced over 1400m was in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes last year which she won by 3 1/2 lengths.

The six-year-old will aim for win number 24 in front of an expected sell-out crowd at Moonee Valley on Friday night in the William Reid Stakes.

After that she is expected to go to the Group 1 TJ Smith (1200m) at Randwick on April 13 but nothing has been decided beyond that.

The $400,000 All Aged Stakes will take place on April 27 and Moody said the prospect of Australia’s superstars of the turf all meeting in one race was an exciting thought.

“You’ve got the likes of More Joyous and Hay List and probably numerous others…it would be terrific for racing if that happened but we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” he said.

Moody has also flagged a potential trip to the Brisbane Winter Carnival where options include the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) and the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m).

The leading Victorian trainer hasn’t ruled out the champion sprinter racing beyond her current campaign.

Black Caviar is currently a $1.04 favourite to record her second William Reid Stakes title and her 14th Group 1 on Friday night.
