Wallace, who trained Benbaun to win the Prix de l'Abbaye and had 114 winner in Britain, said: "I delighted we had four seconds previously and and a third and I was getting a bit frustrated."
Wallace added: ""Hopefully, we can go on from here, most of the horses I have are two-year-olds and they don't start running until next month.
"I have a few niceone amongst them and I am looking forward to gettting them under way."
