Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 14th August 2021

A drop to more suitable company sees Safeeya well placed at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The Lee Freedman-trained mare has been racing well since arriving in Queensland and didn't miss by much when taking on open three-year-old company at Doomben last start, racing on speed and fighting on to go down by 0.4L.

Before that she was a dominant 2.5L winner here in this grade so she is suited back to a class 3.

Jim Byrne sticks and should be able to give Safeeya a charmed run from gate three.


Royal Hale looks a winning hope for Tony Gollan later in the program.

The gelding hit the line well when resuming with a fourth at this course and distance and as a two-time second-up winner should be able to progress off that.

Jaden Lloyd's 7lbs claim brings him in well at the weights and he should get all the favours from a low draw.



BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 3 #8 Safeeya @ $4.20

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 8 #4 Royal Hale @ $4.00
