Get ready to be blown away by Black Caviar
THOUSANDS of Australian racing fans are expected at Royal Ascot for the final day of the meeting on Saturday to cheer on their superstar mare Black Caviar and trainer Peter Moody is predicting they will see "something pretty special."
Officials at Ascot reckon that at least 5,000 Australians will be among the crowd on Saturday when 14 rivals will stand between Black Caviar and a 22nd win from as many starts.
Black Caviar is no better than 1-4 to land the Group 1 sprint over 6f and while connections are not anticipating a repeat of Frankel's romp in the first race of the meeting they are confident that her unbeaten record will remain intact.
Moody said: "One thing I do know is that this is the fittest I've had Black Caviar in the past 24 months. I would love to see her win by ten or 11 lengths but a quarter of an inch will do us. If we want to let her rip we will do it at home.
"This is our turn on a world stage, our Olympics if you like. I don't think you will see a romp like Frankel but I think you will see something pretty special."
Black Caviar is a red-hot favourite and bookmakers Coral rate a wining distance of under three lengths as the 4-5 favourite to be her winning margin.
