Desleigh Forster is hopeful her amazing strike rate can continue when stable flagbearer Adebisi and Easy Running make their summer comebacks at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
Adebisi returns in the Salt Design Handicap (1000m) while Easy Running lines-up in the Paynter Dixon Handicap (1200m).
The in-form Michael Cahill will partner both sprinters.
Forster has trained nine winners from her past 15 starters and has only one runner, Weedreamed, engaged at Ipswich on Friday ahead of her stable stars' comebacks.
Forster blamed a long campaign and a foot abscess for Adebisi's failure when he weakened badly to tail the field in the G3 Healy Stakes at Eagle Farm in June.
"He had a long campaign before the Healy and he had probably had enough by then," Forster said.
"We also discovered he had a footy abscess."
Forster believes Adebisi is easily the classy runner in the field and is confident of a strong performance over 1000 metres.
"He's a lot bigger and stronger this time in and he won a barrier trial at Deagon last month," she said.
Forster had planned to send Adebisi to Sydney but elected to take the easier option at home when she noticed the small nominations for Eagle Farm.
"I was going to take him to Sydney for a 1200-metre race but the nominations were a bit light on here and it looked a lot easier than going to Sydney," she said.
Adebisi gave Forster one of her biggest wins of her training career when he claimed the G3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm last year and will attempt to defend the title again on December 8.
Meanwhile Forster believes Easy Running is on track for the Triple Crown series along with the Magic Millions Cup (1400m) at the Gold Coast in January.
The four-year-old hasn't raced since finishing sixth to Pear Tart in the G2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 2.
"He's coming along well and is forward enough after having two barrier trials," Forster said.
"He's got a long campaign ahead of him but he gives me the impression and he can go on and take the next step.
