The handlers of Black Caviar say ''everything has gone to plan'' in the lead-up to Royal Ascot next week for the undefeated Australian mare.

The horse has been ''eating and sleeping normally'' ahead of the six-furlong Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes race on June 23 outside London.

It will be Black Caviar's first international race.

The 5-year-old mare, owned by a consortium of families and friends in Melbourne, is unbeaten in 21 starts.


Black Caviar broke an Australian record for consecutive wins that lasted nearly a century. Desert Gold won 19 consecutive races from 1915-17 and Gloaming did it from 1919-21.
