Peter and Paul Snowden trained Mazu knocked out the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 at Eagle Farm.
Rising star Mazu has justified his favoritism for the Doomben 10,000 with a hard-fought Group 1 showpiece win at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained three-year-old en route to the 1200m on the back of a brilliant Sydney fall, resisted a late challenge from fellow three-year-old Paulele to secure the first Group 1 of his career.
An eye-catching third place was top flight New Zealand mare Entriviere.
Mazu, who has already secured a berth in the next two The Everests, was led to victory by Sam Clipperton.
