Nieta has always looked a Stakes class mare and Sportsbet.com.au punters think she will make that come to fruition in the Ortensia Stakes (1100m) this Saturday at Scone.

The John Thompson trained mare resumed over 1200m at Randwick on a shifty track and was ridden a touch upside down but she found plenty when challenged and drew clear like a good horse. She opened $2.20 and that was quickly taken, now into $2.00.

She does dominate the market but is not the sole firmer. Deploy, who resumes for Gerald Ryan, has been $8 to $7. Everything else is either steady or on the slide so it’s all one way traffic.
