Fearnleywill be looking to continue his impressive recent form, following his goldmedal performance in last months Commonwealth Games. Hay List had plenty to say at the Spring Carnival Breakfast With The Stars. Today shell be trying to make a big statement in the Patinack Farm Classic Picture: DARREN TINDALE Hay List in top form for Classic SPRING CARNIVALRACING ByMARKRYAN in Melbourne GLYN Schofield is confident his mount Hay List can foil a betting plunge on unbeaten mare Black Caviar in todays Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington. Alice Springs-based Centrebet reported it had held nearly $200,000 on the Patinack Farm yesterday afternoon with Black Caviar attracting by far the most attention. The unbeaten Peter Moodytrained mare has firmed from $1.85 to $1.65 favouritism after bets of $50,000 at $1.77, $40,000 at $1.75 and $25,000 at $1.72. Hay List has eased from $3 to $3.40 with three-year-old Star Witness third pick at $10. TAB Sportsbet reported oneway traffic for Black Caviar yesterday with bets of $50,000 at $1.80 and $30,000 at $1.70 forcing her price in to $1.65. Hay List was given the all clear by Racing Victoria stewards yesterday morning to start in the weight-for-age 1200m feature after suffering a laceration to his offforeleg late last week. The Statue Of Liberty five-yearold took fright and kicked out at a concrete water trough in his paddock, lacerating his shin which required five stitches. Veterinarians were of the opinion that the laceration would not impact on his performance. I think hes 100 per cent, Schofield said. If he comes to the races and Im sure he will in the same condition he was in at his past couple of starts its going to be a great race for everyone to watch. And for me it will be great to be partnering him and Im sure hell be going past the post first. Parisienne on the rise at Randwick Gerald Ryan GERALD Ryan says Rothesays three-quarter sister La Parisienne will be a better horse next preparation but believes she can still be competitive at her first city start at Randwick. La Parisienne tackles todays Sydney City Lexus Hcp (1400m), just two weeks after stakes winner Rothesay was banned from racing in Australia because of a second bleeding attack. Ryan rated Rothesay, winner of this years Queensland Guineas and Lord Mayors Cup in Brisbane, potentially the best horse hes ever trained. La Parisienne finished third on debut in a 1200m maiden at Gosford on October 17 and steps up in distance on the bigger Randwick track. Shell be better next preparation and shell get over a bit of ground, Ryan said. She hasnt shown great natural gate speed in her trials and thats the way she raced on debut. But she got home well and the form out of the race is good. The winner of that race, Tigress Lily, finished second at Canterbury at her next start and the runner-up Magical Anna was an easy winner at Hawkesbury on Thursday. La Parisienne was also entered for a maiden at Newcastle on Saturday but has been scratched to compete at Randwick. She is rated a $14 chance with TAB Sportsbet with the Peter Snowden-trained Caveat favourite at $2.70 just ahead of the Gai Waterhouse-trained Upon This Rock ($2.90). Ryan has three other Randwick entrants but he said Keffiya would not be taking her place as shes run her last race after injuring a tendon on Thursday. Dances On Waves is also a doubtful starter with Randwick rated a slow (6) yesterday, while last-start Hawkesbury winner Mr De Lago is engaged in the AJC National Event Caterer 2010 Handicap. Dances On Waves, entered for the Order Your AJC Christmas Fare Handicap (1300m), races well first-up but needs a good surface to produce her best. The mare is unplaced in four starts on tracks rated dead or worse. Her form on good tracks is three starts for two wins and a second, and the second was to Palacio De Cristal on debut, Ryan said. Ryan also has Melito engaged in the Patinack.
