While some trainers scratch around for horses to run in the spring’s big races, Waller’s main problem will be working out who goes where.

Waller has been a dominant force in Sydney and took his success on the road to score some big wins at Brisbane’s winter carnival.  With 148 1/2 winners so far this season, he sits easily clear at the top of the Sydney premiership table.

The Rosehill trainer has had no shortage of Group 1 winners this spring and we take a look at some of those who will spearhead his spring arsenal.
