Presvis Dominates in Meydan Return

Presvis showed no signs of rust as he powered away from his rivals through the stretch to win the Al Rashidiya-Sponsored by Gulf News (UAE-IIT) by a commanding 4 3/4 lengths at Meydan Race Course Jan. 27. The nine-furlong turf contest was the featured race on the third night of the 2011 Dubai Carnival.

The 7-year-old Sakhee gelding, who was making his first start since Royal Ascot last June, now has won at least one race at the Carnival for three years running.

Ridden by an ultra-confident Ryan Moore, Presvis was settled into last after the break, as outsiders Tam Lin and Tequilla Heights went to the front and set the pace. Frankie Dettori had Caymans just behind that pair in third, as the favorite Irish Flame raced in sixth.

Both outsiders continued to duel on the front end through the early stages of the race, with Caymans tracking them closely. Presvis continued to bring up the rear, trailing the field by as much as four lengths.
