"If that brings him on then that's just where we'll need him to be".
"What I would really like to do is say this will be her race", Waller said.
CAN an global dislodge Winx from her throne in Saturday's Cox Plate?
"She is an Australian horse and has an adoring public following here".
"I just hope that the connections of the horses that think they are a chance to beat Winx really do try hard, because they might beat each other up, that would be flawless", he said.
Matt Chapman apologises to part-owner Debbie Kepitis after Winx's win. She's also the second-best backed runner to win the race, despite being a $35 outsider.
Waller said planning and preparation for a fourth Cox Plate with Winx began virtually the day after she completed her three-peat at the Valley past year.
"He's been a lovely sound horse and never had a problem so it wasn't a great race for the stable".
"We're just making sure she's still as good as the year before, or even six months".
A plan to travel over to Royal Ascot was shelved last spring but all options - including retirement - are open going into the £2.75million Moonee Valley 1m2f contest.
"The beauty of Winx is you can get to enjoy the last 200m of most of her races and that is such a surreal feeling".
After pushing Winx to a long neck when runner-up in last year's race, Humidor finished nearly five lengths behind the champion mare in third place on Saturday.
"He's experienced a high-pressure weight-for-age race for the first time and they don't come any stronger than that".
"They came, we conquered, bring on anything you want to bring here, she is awesome".
