Scales Of Justice will have to overcome the outside barrier if he is to claim a Perth Racing Carnival Group 1 double when he lines up in the Group 1 $1m Peters Investments-Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot on Saturday.

Scales Of Justice led all of the way for Hong Kong premiership winning jockey Douglas Whyte to win the Group 1 $1m James Boag’s Premium Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot on November 19 and owner Chris Wells said that the Lindsey Smith trained four year old will have to go forward again from barrier sixteen.

“It’s not a good barrier, is it? But the way he races, it’s not game over. He’ll still go forward and play a part,” Wells told the West Australian.

“Lindsey said he would rather draw 16 than one. It’ll be hard, but every time we give him something to do, he gets it done.”

Scales Of Justice made it three wins on the trot with his Railway Stakes victory which followed wins in a 1600m BenchMark 72+ Handicap at Ascot and in the Group 3 $150,000 R.J. Peters Stakes (1500m) at Ascot.

Scales Of Justice has been well supported at Ladbrokes.com.au in early Kingston Town Classic betting and shares the second line at $5.50 with the multiple Kiwi Group 1 winner Kawi while local mare Perfect Reflection sits at the top of the market order at $4.20.

The Grant and Alana Williams trained Perfect Reflection has drawn well at barrier two with William Pike to ride while Kawi will also get a good run from barrier four with Michael Walker in the saddle.

Perfect Reflection is searching for back to back Kingston Town Classic wins after she beat the older horses last year as a three year old and has good recent form with a win and two thirds from her three runs this campaign.

The More Than Ready mare was beaten three quarters of a length first up when third in the Group 3 $150,000 Northerly Stakes (1400m) at Ascot on October 15 and was back in the winner’s stall at her next start with a victory in the Group 2 $250,000 Waroa-Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) at Ascot on November 5.

Perfect Reflection then ran on from midfield to finished third behind Scales Of Justice and Good Project in the Railway Stakes a fortnight later.
