Black Caviar: Set to return on Saturday

Black Caviar continues to please Peter Moody ahead of this weekend's return to action in the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at Flemington.

Australia's star mare completed some trackwork ahead of her run in the five furlong Group One contest which has been named in her honour this year.

The Diamond Jubilee Stakes winner worked over 800 meters at Caulfield last Saturday and trainer Peter Moody said that she had had a stronger 800 meters workout out wide on the course proper on Tuesday morning and the work was ''very pleasing.''

Speaking to www.racingvictoria.net.au, Moody said: "She's done super and I'll be disappointed if she gets beat.You saw her at Caulfield, I don't think she has presented any better than that for a long time.

''At the end of her last preparation she was cranky, swishing her tail and getting her head on the side. It was the Black Caviar of old (at Caulfield) back to win 17 or 18 and gave me a real positive to go back to the races with her.''

She is set to be joined by stablemates Moment Of Change and Golden Archer with a $1 million TAB bonus is on offer to the winner if they can go on and land the Sportingbet Oakleigh Plate and then the Lexus Newmarket Handicap.

Moody, however, doesn't expect them to trouble his stable star.

''I'm not kidding myself thinking they can trouble their stablemate but I expect them to run very well and be competitive,'' he added.
