Relaxed & Versatile, Hay List Ready For Schofield

Glyn Schofield

Jockey Glyn Schofield will ride Hay List in the Doomben 10,000 after returning from injury

Hay List continues to shorten as the dominate favourite in this weekend’s Doomben 10,000 and the man tasked with guiding him to victory is Glyn Schofield.

Schofield rode Hay List earlier in the year but after breaking his collarbone in the Sydney Cup this will be his first ride back on the hulking sprinter.

From barrier two he can pretty much dictate the terms to his rivals but Schofield is yet to lock in any game plans.

“I don’t think I’ve got anything set in concrete, I’ll have a chat with John McNair prior to the race,” he said.

While his last few runs have seen him go to the lead and try and hang on all the way, Schofield says that’s certainly not the only way he can win.

“He’s not one dimensional at all, the last couple he’s been dominate out front and he’s been successful that way but he’s also been successful taking a bit of a sit,” he said.

Having said that Hay List will certainly be in the top three and Schofield knows that if he wants the lead he can take it.

“There’s not that many that are quicker than him early on, if we lead we can do that without much effort at all, if we made our intentions clear early we’d get to the fence,” he said.

“If Buffering or Border Rebel want to go hell for leather there’s nothing to say we can’t take a sit either.”

McNair has been saying all week that the key to continued success with Hay List is that he needs to go into the race as relaxed as possible.

Schofield agrees and thinks that the deeper into his prep he goes the more at ease he becomes.

“At the beginning of his prep he gets a bit sweaty and a bit nervous, as he gets through he parades a lot better,” he said.

If Hay List can arrive at Doomben in top form there’s pretty much no way he’ll be beaten, it’s just a matter of how much he has left in his tank.

“You except the horse to come to the races in the same form he has, I’m sure he will, we’re all very happy with him,” he said.
