Who are the runners to follow from the Eagle Farm meeting on December 12? (ALLSPORT)
Racing in Brisbane returned to Eagle Farm on Saturday where there was a strong card of racing.
The track played perfectly with winners coming from all across the track.
Eagle Farm Blackbookers December 12
Dune Forty Five (Fourth): In just his third career start, Dune Forty Five thrived stepping out over further ground and is a staying prospect for the future.
A three-year-old by Americain, the Tony Haydon trained gelding had been getting back to last from wide draws but was able to land closer to the speed on Saturday.
Having the blinkers applied for the first time stepping out to 1820m, he was the only survivor of the on speed runners in the race and stuck on extremely bravely behind winner Good Soize and hot favourite See Marie.
Set to step out beyond 2000m next start, Dune Forty Five is a young staying prospect and will be hard to beat especially on a big circuit like Eagle Farm.
Cochrane (Second): Making his debut in a strong race at Eagle Farm, Cochrane just missed Alpine Edge in a driving finish in the Listed Phelan Stakes.
Landing just behind the speed, the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained colt narrowly travelled beautifully in the run and was brave through the line to only go down in a photo.
Entering the race off two 735m trials, the two-year-old by Spirit of Boom should take strong improvement out of the race especially coming from a renowned grand final stable.
Cochrane has been slashed from $101 to $26 for the Magic Millions and looks on target to be an enormous chance for that feature.
Maozi (Second): The Toby and Trent Edmonds-trained Maozi has been airborne this preparation and narrowly missed in a massive run on Saturday.
Settling at the rear of the field, the four-year-old gelding by Helmet was the only horse to make significant ground in the race.
After winning well at Doomben on Melbourne Cup day, Maozi was luckless last start behind Hard Empire at Doomben was well suited stepping out over a big track at Eagle Farm.
No doubt in fantastic form, Maozi is airborne and if he finds a similar race at Eagle Farm, will be extremely hard to beat.
