Chris Waller doubts he can break record

Premier trainer Chris Waller said "it's impossible" for him to break the Sydney record he set last season after adding another four wins to his tally for the season at Rosehill on Saturday.

Waller needs 23 winners from nine city meetings in July to beat his 167-1/2 winners from 2012-13 and the rate he is chalking up Saturday successes it is within reach. He has had 23 winners at the past six Saturdays, including hauls of four on the past two.

"You can't keep get keep getting four or five winners at every meeting, it's too tough," Waller said. "if you look at Wednesday we had three seconds, you can't always win."

Waller should easily pass the former record of 156, held by Tommy Smith and Gai Waterhouse, and has the horses to make a run at the record given luck.

Waller won the Winter Cup with Secessio and trained the first four home. Hoylonny and Mulaqen were beaten in a photo while Permit plugged on for fourth. The day began well with Winx keeping her unbeaten record in the two-year-old race before Abbasso led home a Waller trifecta in the second.

Jason Collett spoke highly of Winx, which had trouble finding a run in the straight before bursting away.

"She has that turn of foot, Collett said. "She was just brilliant when the run came and is probably the best two-year-old potential-wise I have ridden.

"I think she only going to get better at a mile and is an exciting filly."

Winx will go for a spell but Waller's final winner Done Nothin' Wrong has more wins in store after beating stablemate Saigon Tea in a photo.

"This horse was actually sold to Darwin but the deal fell through, so that is great for the owners," Waller said."It was a good effort to win there."

Done Nothin' Wrong gave Tye Angland a fourth winner for the day after he scored on Abbasso, Secessio and Scream Machine. Angland has been riding with polish since returning from Hong Kong a couple of months ago and Waller is keen to keep the young hoop with his stable.

"Going over there just matures them as jockeys. I don't think jockeys are at their best until 30 but time over there certainly teaches them a lot," Waller said.

"He has come back and is riding great. And the next Tye Angland [Jason Collett] ran second on Saigon Tea.

"He is riding very well as well and getting his share of winners. He might be the next one to spend three months over there."
