Presvis Makes 2011 Debut at Meydan

Group I winning-globetrotter Presvis makes his seasonal debut Jan. 27  in the Al Rashidiya-Sponsored by Gulf News (UAE-IIT) at Meydan Race Course. The nine-furlong turf contest highlights the third night of the 2011 Dubai Carnival.

Trained by Luca Cumani for owner Leonidas Marinopoulos, Presvis will be making his first start since finishing a disappointing ninth-place finish last June in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes (Eng-I) at Royal Ascot. A winner at each of the last two Carnivals, Presvis turned in an impressive performance to capture the 2010 Jebel Hatta (UAE-IIT), scoring by 1 ½-lengths over Alexandros. The son of Sakhee was also a sharp second to champion Gladiatorus in the 2009 Dubai Duty Free (UAE-IT) at Nad Al Sheba.

The connections of the 7-year-old gelding are hopeful of their chances, with Cumani’s assistant trainer, Charlie Henson telling The Racing Post, “He has been off a long time now and is sure to improve from the run, but he looks in good shape and enjoys his time in Dubai.”

Ryan Moore has the mount.
