CHAMPION trainer has four chances to make it four straight Epsom Handicaps in a row on Saturday, but they'll have to overcome the $5 Sportsbet.com.au favourite, Huaraki.

The -trained Hauraki ran second to Winx two weeks ago and looks poised for a big run in Saturday's at .

Waller has the second favourite McCreery, which sits at the $6.50 quote alongside the -trained Palentino.

Waller's other runners are Mackintosh ($10), ($17) and ($21).

John O'Shea believes his galloper is the horse to beat heading into Saturday.


“We set a path for him to get to the Epsom and he couldn't have done any more in the lead-up,” O'Shea said.

Sportsbet.com.au representative Christian Jantzen believes Waller and O'Shea will again be in the reckoning for Saturday's Group 1 crown.

“Waller and O'Shea dominate the major races and both trainers hold a strong hand. But Waller has made the Epsom his own and his up and comer McCreery has drawn well and should give the race a shake,” Jantzen said.
