With Black Caviar currently en route to take on the world in England, Timeform has issued an ominous warning to her competitors.
Timeform has studied the Grade 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Ascot and concluded that the champion mare will once again stride away from her opposition to claim a convincing victory.
Racing analyst Gary Crispe agrees with Timeform’s seemingly obvious predictions.
“If Black Caviar runs to her top, as predicted by trainer Peter Moody, then any opponent must run to a rating of 139 if they are to beat her,” Crispe said.
“That is simply not going to happen.”
Black Caviar will be looking to post her 22nd unbeaten race win in the Diamond Jubilee, where she will be making her debut international appearance.
The Queen of Australian racing has already proved herself against the best Australia has to offer, winning her first 21 race starts in style.
Crispe is confident the no other horse will be able to keep up with the Bel Esprit mare, no-matter where she races across the world.
“With a Timeform rating of 136, Black Caviar is the equal top-rated filly or mare in history alongside Habibti, a superlative British sprinter of the 1980s, and Allez France, the top French filly of the 1970s,” he said.
However, an England campaign is not a sure thing for Black Caviar, who still has to pull through her long plane flight in perfect health.
Moody has made no secret of the fact that he will not run her if she fails to recover from the travelling.
However, in the likely circumstance all goes to plan, Black Caviar may well line up for the July Cup at Newmarket on July 14.
The five-year-old will then fly home to prepare for another spring carnival campaign in Melbourne.
