Spell to Follow Multilateral’s Australia Day Cup 2015 Run

Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller has confirmed a spell will follow the 2015 Australia Cup run from his consistent cups performer Multilateral at Royal Randwick this Saturday.

The Mizzen Mast six-year-old has enjoyed two earlier cup victories since September last year and will be looking to make it a hat-trick in the $100,000 Listed Vili’s Pies Australia Day Cup (2400m).

It’s currently a tight Australia Day Cup betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Magic Millions Stayers Cup fourth placegetter Danas Best ($4.20) and market mover Oriental Lady ($4.80) vying for top spot in the odds.

Multilateral meanwhile pays $6.50 as the third pick in the markets to win with his 58.5kg allocation, Glyn Schofield to ride the gelding from barrier two.

Waller also saddles up the 59kg top weight from one alley wider with Dansili eight-year-old Permit to jump from barrier three with Hugh Bowman aboard.

Back in early September Multilateral won the Listed Wyong Gold Cup (2100m) on a Slow (7) with expat Kiwi James McDonald in the saddle.

He was back in the winner’s stall then on January 1 with his one length victory over Ghost Protocol in the Listed Tattersall’s Club Cup (2400m) at Randwick, Schofield in the saddle that day.

Last start he finished one and a half lengths away fourth behind Midsummer Sun in the Listed Gosford Cup (2100m) when dropped back in distance in a race that didn’t play into the hands of the backmarkers.

Waller is happy to excuse that run and believes back up over the mile and a half on Saturday the import, who joined his operation from the UK two years ago, will be ready to strike in his season swansong and post his ninth victory down under.

“His Gosford Cup run was really good, they probably didn’t go quite quick enough for him,” he said.

“He’ll appreciate getting back up to this trip and hopefully the track is not as firm as last week.

“He’s very fit, we don’t have to do too much with him now.”

The Australia Day Cup, where Multilateral can thrive on a wet Sydney track, will round out the horse’s summer prep with Waller looking at a winter return and a possible trip to Queensland for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

“We’ll probably spell him after Saturday and get him ready for the winter and we know he’ll handle wet ground,” he said.
