File Event with multiple paths

Hello I have a need to fire an event when a directory has received 1 each of x number files.

The files have differing names with no common pattern (other than the directory) and the file names are all appended with a time stamp.

Unfortunately it is acceptable for multiple versions of one file (only differing by time stamp) to arrive so a file count doesn't work.

e.g. I need the event to fire when at least 1 copy of files a.*, b.* and c.* arrive.

I may already have the following files and am just waiting for 1 copy of c.*

\a.201420011544
\a.201420032723
\a.201420181759
\b.201421000812

Obviously I can run a script regularly but was wondering if there is an elegant way to handle in UC4

Many thanks in advance
