Sydney’s leading trainer improved his Melbourne record with the win of Foreteller in Saturday’s Group Three David Jones Cup (2000m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

And now Chris Waller is looking to the same horse to give him his first Group One win at Flemington on Derby Day.

Foreteller ($10), came from near last to grab a one length victory that was a tribute to both his trainer’s skills, particularly with imported horses, and his own constitution.

Although he has been sparingly raced, Foreteller has been in work since February.

Since then he has raced almost every month, winning three on end during the winter, and he will continue for at least one more run.

Waller said Foreteller would be given his chance to win a Group One race in the W S Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington in two weeks.

“Everyone is saying it’s looking like a Cox Plate without much depth, so I’m hoping it’ll be the same with the Mackinnon,” he said.

Foreteller is yet another winner to have joined Waller’s stable from Europe.

The son of Dansili had raced nine times in France where his three wins were also in succession.

“He adapted very well and he’s improved all the way through,” Waller said.

Waller wasn’t certain how many winners he’d trained in Melbourne, but admitted he could “count them on on hand” although they do include Danleigh in the 2009 Group One Manikato Stakes.

“It’s great to come down here at this time of year and win a good race,” he said.

“One more would be even better.”

Foreteller also continued the good fortune of part-owner Neil Werrett who last week celebrated the 14 wins from as many starts of his champion mare Black Caviar.

Corey Brown brought Foreteller from last at the 400m to swamp the field in the final 50m, beating Extra Zero with the favourite Midnight Martini a nose away in third place.
