See The World Near Certain Winter Stakes 2012 Starter

It is almost a certainty that See The World will be among the acceptances when the final field for the Listed $150,000 2012 Winter Stakes (1400m) is announced tomorrow.

See The World is almost certain to be in the 2012 Winter Stakes final field

The in-form five-year-old may be backing up just seven days after an excellent one-length win at Rosehill on Saturday but trainer Joseph Pride is keen to give him the opportunity to chase a third straight victory.

“I’m pretty sure he will run. I’ve had a look at the field and he will be more than competitive,” Pride said.

“He really likes winter racing. I gave him one run in the summer and he was terrible.”

The Danzero gelding scored a breakthrough black-type win at the end of last month in the Takeover Target Stakes, winning a tight contest ahead of Beyond Pardon.

It has been an excellent campaign so far for the Sydney-based sprinter, winning three times, placing once and finishing a worst of fourth from five winter starts.

His two most recent starts have shown his ability to perform in the wet but Pride is not too concerned by a fine forecast in Sydney this week.

“He doesn’t need it really wet and Warwick Farm won’t dry out completely by Saturday anyway so that won’t be a worry.”

See The World will be stepping up to 1400 metres for the first time in Saturday’s feature and will have regular jockey Christian Reith on board.

Also likely to start is Gai Waterhouse-trained gelding King Lionheart who will be returning from a spell after an autumn campaign that included just one disappointing start.

But the Al Maher five-year-old is a proven stakes level performer, winning the Group 2 Shannon Stakes last spring and placing in the Group 2 Villers Stakes in January.

Former Doncaster Miler third place-getter Brilliant Light will be out to end a 27-month drought, having not tasted success since autumn 2010.
