Hay List Deserving Favourite in 2012 Newmarket Handicap

With super mare Black Caviar not running in the 2012 Newmarket Handicap, often runner up Hay List will head in to the nation’s most prestigious sprint as deserving favourite.

Currently paying $3.70 at bookmaker.com.au, the six-year-old has two Group 1 victories to his name but has finished second to Black Caviar an amazing five times.

The John McNair trained gelding is well and truly proven over the Newmarket length of 1200 metres, having recorded six victories at the distance.

He will carry the top weight of 58.5kg in to the Newmarket Handicap this weekend. This gives the six-year-old a chance to prove his talent as it is the heaviest weight carried in to the Newmarket since 1959.
