Imperatriz has won her last five starts and that included a perfect run of five straight sprinting victories over the Melbourne Spring Carnival, where the five-year-old confirmed her status as Australia's premier sprinter.

After producing four brilliant performances at Moonee Valley, the Te Akau-owned mare proved her straight-track credentials with a half-length win in the Champions Sprint on November 11.

Connections have confirmed that Imperatriz will resume in the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes and the bookies have been quick to react, with PlayUp installing her as a $1.85 favourite to win this 1000m dash.

After resuming in spring with a Group 2 triumph at Randwick, Private Eye ($5) was unlucky in The Everest, where the son of Al Maher covered ground in an eventual third-place finish.

He did taste success up the Flemington straight when resuming with a victory in the 2022 spring and he did have topweight of 58kg when fourth here via last year's Newmarket Handicap.

I Am Unstoppable ($5) hasn't finished out of the money in six career starts to date and that includes a hat-trick of seconds to round out his spring campaign, with the last of those coming in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Winners

Held in mid-February, the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes is one of Melbourne's top line 1000m sprinting events and one of Australia's best races.

Worth $1 million, the Lightning is one of two Group 1sprints held at Flemington during the Autumn, the other being the Newmarket Handicap.

The race was known just as the Lightning Stakes, but after the invincible Black Caviar was able to claim three in a row from 2011-13, the race was named in her honour.

Nature Strip (2021), Home Affairs (2022) and Coolangatta (2023) have won the last three editions of the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes.
