Superstar mare Black Caviar  is likely to be facing the starter in her home state for the first time when she lines up in the William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday night. The fact that she takes on just six rivals is irrelevant, as she is the drawcard for the race and the reason that the course is likely to be sold out. The six year-old mare is unbeaten in 23 career starts and could well be retired at the end of her current campaign, which could include starts in the TJ Smith and All Aged Stakes in Sydney as well as the BTC Cup and Doomben 10,000 in Brisbane.

Western Australian Group One winner Luckygray  spearheads the quest to bring about the champs undoing alongside Newmarket sixth Spirit Of Boom  and Peter Moody’s other runner in the race, Karuta Queen . Former Hong Kong star Good Ba Ba  will jump from barrier five, while Linton  and Fawkner  go into the $400,000 event first-up from a spell.
