All's well that ends well - but only just

Given that there has been three days since the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, the most anticipated, watched or assessed race in history, the likelihood of the next thousand words offering something on Black Caviar which has not already been tweeted, twisted, blogged, bludgeoned, broadcast, crafted or crammed into the racing world's consciousness is probably low.
