Like the Memsie Stakes from two weeks, the early market push with Sportsbet has been for Scales Of Justice when it comes to the Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The Lindsey Smith trained gelding returned to winning form when winning the Memsie, aided by a peach from Yendall. $6 was his opening price and that’s been taken, now into $4.80 and is a clear second favourite behind Mystic Journey, who is $1.90 to $2.20 and likely gets further out.
The only other runner at single figures is last years Melbourne Cup early favourite Yucatan, who is first up. He opened $8 and is now at $9.00. In terms of those at odds, the best backed has been the old warrior Hartnell, who is $12 in from $15.
