New Zealand raider Beefeater has arrived safely in Queensland ahead of his run in the Saturday’s Listed Members’ Handicap (1600m) at Doomben.
The six-year-old arrived in Australia on Friday and trainer Roydon Bergerson said he has settled in well.
“I’m pleased with him heading into Saturday, but I didn’t think the field would be so strong,” Bergerson said.
“There are good nominations, so we will see who pays up.”
The trainer said the gelding’s Queensland campaign will encompass three starts, culminating in a tilt at the Listed G.H. Mumm Open (1800m) at Eagle Farm on June 22.
