McNair: Hay List Can Win First-Up
Gosford trainer John McNair believes injury prone sprinter Hay List (Statue of Liberty-Sing Hallelujah, by Is it True) is forward enough to emerge victorious when he resumes in the Gr3 Concorde Stakes (1000m) at Randwick on Saturday, reports horseracing.com.au. McNair says he was pleased with Hay List's work on Tuesday morning and although the 8YO veteran is a long way off peak fitness, he is expecting a bold showing. "He (regular rider Glyn Schofield) said Hay List was probably 80 per cent fitness-wise, but his work is good enough to suggest he'll be hard to beat," McNair said. "We have an 8YO who has taken a bit longer than expected to come up, but Glyn told me it was good work… so that's good enough for me."
