Jockey Brenton Avdulla is relishing the chance to reunite with Hinged in Saturday's Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes at Rosehill.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old gave Avdulla a dream return from six months on the sidelines with a neck injury when she claimed the Surround Stakes a month ago and she is 3/1 to add to her Group 1 tally.
After being unable to ride Hinged due to the weight she was allotted when finishing third in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic on her most recent outing, Avdulla is eager to get on board the filly once again.
"She profiles well for the race, she won well second-up in the Surround on wet ground," he told RacingNSW.
"She was unlucky in the Coolmore but ran well and hit the line well. It suggests going to 2000 metres on Saturday on her home track, on a wet track again, she will be ready to go."
Hinged has won six of her 13 starts to date, making the frame on a further four occasions.
Hinged and Avdulla are set to jump from barrier four and the rider continued: "It'll always be how she jumps and that's where she'll be, I won't be riding her out of her comfort zone but if she jumps well enough and she can hold a spot behind them that's all well and good.
"I wouldn't imagine she would be too far away."
