After sweeping all before her in Australia’s best sprint races, the world’s highest rated sprinter is set to be tried over 1400m for the first time when she contests the Group One Orr Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. Black Caviar is unbeaten in seventeen career starts with four wins over 1000m and thirteen over 1200m but she has never raced over further.

Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed  looks to be the biggest danger in the nine horse field, which features dual group one winner Playing God  and 2007 Melbourne Cup hero Efficient , but the wonder mare isn’t expected to be seriously tested.
