Punters are keeping their powder dry when it comes to the feature race at Ascot this Saturday, the Lee Steere Stakes (1400m).
The clear top pick in betting is local star Scales Of Justice, who is back home after a failed prep in Melbourne. Could not have trialled any better on Monday and is expected to win en route to the Railway. Still, he has been easy early, out to $1.65 from $1.50.
His key threat appears to be in form mare and Northerly winner Silverstream, but she too has been friendless, out to $5 from $4.60. Another back from a failed Melbourne campaign, Chocolate Holic, is very solid at $8.
There has been a nibble each way for Disposition ($10-$9-$9.50).
