RACE 2 MONSTER STORAGE HANDICAP 1:54 PM (1200M)
Another strong ratings handicap at this stand-alone Saturday meeting that sees an intriguing clash between developing sprinter-milers SCALES OF JUSTICE and COMING BACK. The pair are both racing first-up and both performed well in recent barrier trials, however, we’re comfortably leaning towards the Lindsey Smith-prepared SCALES OF JUSTICE as our on-top selection. This fellow was scratched from last Saturday’s Birthday Stakes in preference for this event and he appears to be a horse destined for big things, with connections no doubt having one eye on a tilt at this year’s Railway Stakes. SCALES OF JUSTICE can justify the hype by getting the job done first up. COMING BACK has had an interrupted 2016, racing only once, but possesses some strong formlines from racing in this company at his past three appearances. Performed well at the trials, has a good fresh record, and we expect him to get back and charge home late. STABLE SECRET made light work of his rivals at Belmont last Saturday week and hits this race with form and fitness, and should enjoy the gun run from an inside alley, while SPIN DA WHEELS has been performing super consistently and must warrant consideration back on his home deck.
Suggested Bet: (4) SCALES OF JUSTICE to win.
