The Australian superstar that is Black Caviar, recorded a 21st victory and kept her unbeaten record intact, when cruising home in the Group 1 Goodwood at Morphettville.
Having her final run before a trip to England for the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, Peter Moody's great sprinter was never out of second gear under Luke Nolen and has little more to prove in her native land.
The 6 year-old mare's unbeaten run now dates back to April 2009, and includes ten Group 1 victories, but such is the national interest in the horse down-under that her trainer is never at ease when Black Caviar visits the racecourse, saying " I can't really enjoy her races until they are over but she makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up like everyone and it's good to get another one behind us.
Everything has gone as expected, she's where we want her so as long as she pleases us in the next three weeks she'll be on the plane to England."
Black Caviar's reputation is such that betting on Royal Ascot's Diamond Jubilee Stakes revolves around her, and her alone, with no bookmaker willing to go any bigger than 8/11.
That price can be taken with Betvictor, while Bet365 are a very skinny 1/2, in no doubt that this is by far the best sprinter in the world at present.
Next weeks' Duke of York Stakes at York is likely to see several horses who will try to spoil the party for Australia next month, headed by Hoof It and Society Rock, available at 12/1 and 16/1 repectively for Ascot.
Either horse will need to put up a mind-blowing performance on the Knavesmire next Wednesday if they are to be taken seriously as a threat to the flying mare.
