Yuma Desert led all the way denying Test The World a fifth straight win today at Randwick.  Apprentice jockey Nick Heywood judged the ride perfectly.  "We were pretty confident that Test The World wouldn't take us on for the lead and that she'd hand up, especially with the big weight," trainer Paul Snowden said.  "So we made our intentions known early and Nick carried out the plan perfectly.  "It was a smart ride. Nick's in the latter part of his apprenticeship now, he's down to 2kg and obviously that was a telling factor today."

Yuma Desert is out of Sandy Desert by Not a Single Doubt.
