Lightly raced three-year-old harness racing filly Freyde delivered an impressive performance to win a 3C0-C0 at the UBET Racing Centre in Launceston tonight (Sunday).

Freyde (Riverboat King-Diligently) was buried away in the field three-back the fence from her inside second-row draw while the well backed favourite Pageantry showed his rivals a clean pair heels as he slipped to the lead and looked to be travell9ng comfortably turning for home.

But when Freyde's driver Todd Rattray found clean air about 100 metres from home and eased the Barrie Rattray-trained filly into space she rattled home and hit the line almost two metres clear of Pageantry with first starter Kouper Bailey a close-up third.

Freyde was coming off a fourth in Launceston at her previous outing which was her first start in almost a year.

The filly won in Hobart in August last year but was subsequently dispatched to the paddock to recover from an injury.

Given the way the Freyde sprinted to the line tonight when clear of the pack there are more wins in store for this filly. Pageantry did a good job to hold on for second while Kouper Bailey (Courage Under Fire-Balencia) showed courage on debut to battle on after facing the breeze for the duration.
