West Australian trainer Lindsey Smith is on the lookout for a new jockey for Scales Of Justice in the Group 1 $1m James Boag’s Premium Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in Perth on Saturday after regular rider Paul Harvey was suspended on the weekend.

Harvey has been aboard Scales Of Justice for all his four Spring outings incl

uding his last start win in the Group 3 $150,000 R.J. Peters Stakes (1500m) at Ascot on Saturday which followed a win in a 1600m BenchMark 72+ Handicap at Ascot on October 29.

The top Perth jockey pleaded guilty to careless riding for causing interference when he allowed his mount I Am Boudica to shift in at the 1400m in the Group 3 $200,000 W.A. Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m) hampering runner up Ellicazoom.

Stewards handed down a twenty-six day suspending starting immediately which virtually puts Harvey out for most of the 2016 Ascot Racing Carnival.

As well as missing Saturday’s Railway Stakes Day, Harvey will also be on the sidelines for the Winterbottom Stakes Day on November 26 and Kingston Town Classic Day on December 3.

“I’m happy to serve it immediately,” Harvey told stewards.

“I only had a couple of rides next week. I rode that horse (Scales Of Justice) who got in to the Railway but I’m not sure what weight he would get.”

Scales Of Justice earned automatic entry into the Railway Stakes with his win in the R.J. Peters Stakes and Smith thinks he will be better suited over the 1600m this week and possibly further later on in the Carnival.

“We’ve had a throw at the stumps and we’re in the race,” Smith said.

“I don’t even think the 1500’s his go. I’d like to see him in an 1800 where he could roll along.”

Scales Of Justice is currently listed at $10 for the Railways Stakes with Ladbrokes.com.au who have the Chris Waller trained Mackintosh at the top of the market order at $5 just ahead of top local mare Perfect Reflection at $6 and the Darren Weir trained Rageese at $7.

Market order for the Railway Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au: $5 Mackintosh, $6 Perfect Reflection, $7 Rageese, $9 Deposition, $10 Scales Of Justice, Tradesman, $11 He Or She, Kawi, $13 Good Project, Heart Starter, $15 Lite’n In My Veins, Vanbrugh, $17 Chocolate Holic, Stratum Star, $21 Arod, Mccreery, Neverland.
