2014 Wyong Gold Cup Winner Multilateral Waller’s 4th

Sydney’s four time premiership winning trainer Chris Waller enjoyed another historical quartet on Friday when his progressive European import Multilateral handed him his fourth Wyong Gold Cup trophy.

Securing his second win for the year Mizzen Mast gelding Multilateral improved on a last start fifth to stable mate Hoylonny at Rosehill over 1800m from mid-August to come up on top in this year’s $150,000 Listed Carlton Mid Wyong Gold Cup (2100m).

Jumping as the $4 favourite as the six-year-old grey raced over the track and the distance for the first time, Multilateral was given a gun ride from James McDonald.

On the line he had half a length to spare over the Joe Pride-trained Albury Cup winner Canny Ballad ($13) with another Waller-trained import Secessio ($16), winner of the Winter Cup and runner-up in the Grafton Cup during July, just under two lengths off his stable mate in third to finish off the Wyong Gold Cup trifecta.

McDonald had Multilateral in the right position at the top of the short Wyong straight and the horse was able to power on to hold off the fast-finishing runner-up, thriving on the rain affected course.

“He’s a horse that thrives in the wet conditions and he got that today,” Kiwi expat McDonald said on Friday.

“Even though he was stopping late, he hung on well.”

The Wyong Gold Cup 2014 result secured a record-breaking fourth win in the race for Waller in the past five years.

His previous winners in the past half-decade were Hawk Island (2010), The Verminator (2011) and 12 months ago with Wazn.

Multilateral’s 2014 win saw Waller surpass fellow top Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse who until yesterday co-held the record with three Wyong Gold Cup wins.

She too launched a three-pronged attack on the race this season but her runners all failed to let down in the wet with Travolta (eighth), Laidback Larry (ninth) and the well-fancied Grafton Cup winner Queenstown (10th) all well beaten.

It also secured a $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) bid for the winner Multilateral who heads towards the mile and a half handicap clash at Royal Randwick on October 4.

Futures The Metropolitan betting at Ladbrokes.com.au is led by Makybe Diva’s three-quarter sister La Amistad ($4.40) while the bookies remain skeptical of the Wyong Cup form with Multilateral still at a roughie’s price of $67.

He could get a chance to trump the form however with a possible run in the tougher $175,000 Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) on September 18, a race McDonald doesn’t rate outside the horse’s ability.

“It’s not out of his range, that’s for sure,” he said.
