See The World defies wide trip in Sprint

See The World gave Nash Rawiller another valuable win in his battle for the Sydney jockeys' premiership at Randwick on Saturday, but his ride wasn't exactly what trainer Joe Pride had in mind.

Pride's instructions to Rawiller to slot See The World in with cover in the July Sprint (1200m) but the $5 second favourite was four wide throughout the race.

"It was a big effort by this horse," Pride said.

"My instructions were simple, to get cover.

"I don't know what Nash was doing," the trainer added good-naturedly.

See The World strode to the line 1-1/4 lengths clear of Master Harry ($8.50) with Griffon ($11) another nose third.

The winner has had a mixed campaign, pulling hard at his two previous starts when well beaten in the BTC Sprint in May and again when seventh in the Civic Stakes.

"He is a really difficult horse," Pride said.

"He was disappointing in Brisbane and I learned that he doesn't travel," he said.

Rawiller said he rode See The World to keep him happy and as relaxed as possible.

Topweight Havana Rey ($10) finished last of the 11 runners with trainer Bjorn Baker telling stewards he would re-assess his program.

"He goes better over longer and the plan was the Missile Stakes but on a run like that, we may look at something else although he would get some weight relief in that race," he said.

While Rawiller and Hugh Bowman are duelling for Sydney premiership honours, Pride is in a battle of his own for fourth place on the trainers' table.

Chris Waller is the runaway winner ahead of Gai Waterhouse and Peter Snowden while Pride narrowed the gap on John O'Shea to one with See The World's win.

"Forget about the jockeys' premiership, I've got a minor one of my own going on with John O'Shea," Pride said.

Pride's joy was short-lived with O'Shea hitting back just 40 minutes later with Iggi Pop winning.
