Eagle Farm hosted a feature card in Brisbane on Saturday. (ALLSPORT)
Star Of Michelin (First): This Stuart Kendrick trained three-year-old gelding bounced back to form with a massive win from last over 1400m.
The son of Jet Spur was airborne during his autumn campaign finishing on the heels of the talented Baroda and Ballistic Boy before thrashing his opposition over the mile, but his form dropped off a cliff after that.
After a couple of runs following a quick let-up, Star Of Michelin was hitting the line well before really bouncing back to form at Eagle Farm on Saturday where he made a sustained swooping run from last to record a strong victory.
We won't have to wait long to see him step out again as he looks likely to back-up this weekend in the Group Three Winx Guineas on his home track at the Sunshine Coast.
See Marie (Fourth): A highly talented filly who has promised so much already in her career, she has been her own worst enemy with terrible barrier manners.
Always flopping out of the barriers at the start of her races, the Desleigh Forster trained daughter of Sebring looks destined to be a fantastic miler but admittedly leaves herself simply too much work to do from last.
On Saturday she once again flopped out the gates as a long last before making a sweeping run around the field running her last 600m in 35.64, the same as Star Of Michelin the race before.
Although she has enjoyed a long campaign this preparation and is likely to be sent for a spell, she certainly looks a filly with massive upside as she grows into a three-year-old and if Forster can iron out her barrier issues, she has a big future.
Bogey Man (Sixth): The Lindsey Hatch-trained six-year-old gelding has developed a fantastic record winning eight of 32 races so far in his career and returned in fantastic fashion first-up over 1000m on Saturday.
Stepping out under Andrew Mallyon the bay gelding has never won first-up, only managing to place on one occasion, however, he has been a picture of consistency second-up winning three of six.
In a fantastic performance, Andrew mallyon settled the son of Bagger Vance last before charging home running his last 600m in 34.07 seconds finishing alongside some of Brisbane's best 1000m horses.
Although he did start $31 on Saturday and has mainly competed on his hometrack in Toowoomba, Bogey Man is certainly worth following whether it is a nice each-way odds in the city again or at his home track in Toowoomba.
Persuader (Seventh): Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr-trained Persuader looks to be building nicely to run a massive race at a knock-out price.
After promising plenty in Victoria as a three-year-old, the daughter of Zoustar looked to have dropped off a cliff before returning to form off a couple of massive runs in Queensland last prep where she finished third in the Listed Sunshine Coast Cup.
After settling midfield from barrier ten, she worked home well before her run came to an end 150m from home.
Likely to step up over 1400m, she looks primed to put in a peak performance next start and is likely to open at a generous price.
