Black Caviar is said to be adapting effortlessly to the Sydney way of going in time for her New South Wales debut on Saturday in the TJ Smith Stakes.

The superstar mare will attempt to claim her 12th straight unbeaten win in Saturday’s race, all the while adapting to Sydney’s clockwise track direction.

Trainer, Peter Moody, is more than confident that Black Caviar will take the change in direction in her stride and perform to her peak this weekend.

“She galloped the Sydney way over half a mile (800m) and worked super,” Moody said.

“There’s not much more to say.”

Moody said that there was no point avoiding the change in track direction, as there has to be a first time for everything.

“We’ve got find out one day if she handles it,” he said.

Black Caviar’s preparation for her 12th start has been far from intense, although Moody is confident it will do the job.

”We haven’t done a lot with her, just a little spin here or there, but she’s tightened right down in her fitness and everything looks to be right on track,” Moody said.

”She’s risen to the challenge every time we’ve asked her and she won’t have any excuses there on Saturday. She’s as well as she can be.”
