  1. Really like both your picks. I checked them against my picks, and they’re not drastically different at all. I have basically most of the same horses picked that both of you have, just in some cases in different top 3 finishing order. I think this year’s Al Rashidiya looks a very interesting renewal. Presvis came into the race a year ago off a 7 month lay-off and dominated the field. I like that he had Ryan Moore booked to ride, because Presvis has always produced his best runs in big races when Ryan Moore’s been riding. Musir comes into the race off of arguably the most single impressive performance at the 2012 Carnival to date. Albeit on tapeta. But Mike De Kock’s been very animate that Musir’s as equally good on turf as he’s been on tapeta. His form on turf this year in Turkey, Hong Kong, and in the UK suggest that De Kock may be right about thinking that. Rajsaman didn’t run particularly well in either of his 2 starts at Meydan a year ago. But he brings significantly better form to Dubai this year than he brought a year ago. Having beaten Byword to win the G2 Prix Du Muguet and Rio De La Plata to win the G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein. Plus a couple of very respectable 3rd place finishes behind Goldikova in the G1 Prix D’ Ispahan and Excelebration in the G1 Prix Du Moulin. If he brings that level of form into the Al Rashidiya with him, he could be a significant player. Of the remaining horses in the field, I think Win For Sure and City Style are the 2 most likely to run above their rating. Win For Sure has won on turf at Meydan and ran well on tapeta, too. City Style’s only raced on tapeta at Meydan at present, but has wins in 2011 and 2012. Plus, he did win 2 times on turf at Nad Al Sheba in 2009. I think Soumillon’s definitely gonna be looking to get first run with Musir on Presvis, and I would expect to see Rajsaman go right with him. But when all is said and done, I like Moore to weave his through the field again and nail them both at the wire. Presvis to win. Musir to place. Rajsaman to show. And flip a coin between City Style and Win For Sure for 4th. Although I marginally favor City Style because he can run on any surface, and he already has a win at the carnival this year. Win For Sure may end up needing the run to wind him back up to something like his best? JMO.
