See The World has returned to racing in typically competitive form for trainer Joe Pride this time in and has been included in 2015 Winter Stakes nominations.

Posting nine wins and a further 13 minors through 42 career starts so far, See The World charged home for a credible fourth in the talent-rich Sydney Markets Foundation Handicap (1100m) first-up on May 23rd, and while unlucky to be blocked for a run and seventh in the Listed June Stakes (1100m), responded well in placing third in the Winter Dash (1200m) on June 20th.

Having since finished third in the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) at Rosehill on July 14th, See The World is sure to lay a great account for himself in the 2015 Sydney Winter Stakes.

Leading Randwick trainer Gai Waterhouse is set to be offered two good chances for success in the 2015 Winter Stakes after including both Liberty’s Choice and Spurtonic in nominations.

Liberty’s Choice has won only one of his nineteen career starts so far, but has finished in the first three a further eleven times.

Running a credible seventh in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) most notably in spring, the Redoute’s Choice gelding is yet to appear on course competitively in 2015 but won a pair of strong Randwick barrier trials through June.

Securing six wins and a further three minors through twenty career starts, Spurtonic was unable to post much of a consistent run of form through four starts early in 2015 but has also trialled well in the lead-up to his competitive return.

Premier Sydney trainer Chris Waller is set field four entries in the 2015 Winter Stakes, including both Diametric and You’ll Never.

Diametric returned to racing this year for immediate success in the Declaration Of War Plate (1600m) on January 10th; progressing to a credible third in the Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m) most notably on February 21st.

Arguably Waller’s best chance of 2015 Winter Stakes success, You’ll Never won each of the One Solutions BM95 (1350m) and Octagonal Handicap (1400m) first-up; placing third in each of the TAB Rewards Handicap (1400m) and Perfection Fresh Handicap (1500m) most recently.

The 2015 Winter Stakes final field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
