No Eastern Campaign For WA Star
An Eastern States campaign for star West Australian galloper Scales Of Justice (Not a Single Doubt-Beymatilla, by Umatilla) that potentially would have comprised a shot at the Australian Cup and Doncaster Mile has been abandoned, reports Racing.com. Trainer Lindsey Smith has decided that the Gr1 WATC Railway Stakes winner and Gr1 WATC Kingston Town Classic runner-up requires more time in the paddock after watching him work on Tuesday morning. "I've changed my mind with him a few times in the past couple of days and after looking at him today, I think he needs more time off," Smith said. "I was quite disappointed with how he looked. He was flat, his body was saying that he needed more time so I will give him another month." Smith added: "There is no point going across and the preparation goes pear shaped because the horse isn't ready for it. I'll give him another month, assess how he is and then make our plans from there."
