The experienced rider aggravated a back injury at Canterbury on Wednesday but was always confident he would be right to partner the star gelding.

Now the jockey has been confirmed as fit, it’s just time for the horse.

Hay List will be forced to undergo a vet check upon his arrival at Warwick Farm in order to be cleared for the $175,000 sprint.

Heat was discovered in the seven-year-old’s hoof following a track gallop at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

Hay List’s stable vet examined the big sprinter before and after trackwork on Thursday morning and reported that he is sound.

The Statue Of Liberty gelding is racing for the first time since March 23 last year after a troublesome year with illness and injury.

Despite the long layoff, Hay List is still favourite to return with a bang, currently being offered at $2.90 at

The often bridesmaid to Black Caviar has a phenomenal record in his own right, having won 15 times from 23 starts and collected more than $2.5 million in prizemoney.

Hay List won his only previous try at the Challenge Stakes, with Schofield piloting him to victory in 2011.

A quality group of horses will be out to steal Hay List’s thunder, with Snitzerland second favourite at $4.60 ahead of Tiger Tees ($5.50).

Other Challenge Stakes contenders include Oakleigh Plate winner Mrs Onassis ($11), Lighting Stakes third Golden Archer ($15) and Queensland gelding Temple Of Boom ($19).
