Leading No Concern for Scales of Justice Trainer
Saturday's Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes has no natural leader among the field, and Scales of Justice (Not a Single Doubt-Beymatilla, by Umatilla) trainer Lindsey Smith told racenet.com.au, he isn't worried. "He's pretty good in front if they go slow and someone has to take it up because he can lead and run a good race," Smith said. "He has that in him and if the pace is slow, he can lead because he has got to run to his speed a bit. The other day, he was able to stay on the pace from a fair way out and hold the others off, so it was a terrific effort." Scales of Justice has led to win in both the Gr3 Hyperion Stakes over a mile, and in the Gr1 Railway Stakes in Perth. Sportsbet has the gelding at $5 making him second favourite behind Mystic Journey (Needs Further-White Gold, by Colombia) at $2.10.
