Older Comments about the 2012 Al Rashidiya (G2)...

This years G2 Al Rashidiya in Dubai, on paper, looks like it has the potential to be a very competitive race. Presvis came into last years Al Rashidiya off of a 7 month lay-off, and ended up dominating the field in the Al Rashidiya a year ago. It's also a bonus for Presvis when Ryan Moore is riding as he will be on Thursday, because no other jockey who's ever ridden him has gotten the kind of results out of Presvis that Moore has. Musir put up arguably the most impressive single performance seen so far at the 2012 Dubai Carnival when much the best winning the G3 Al Maktoum Challenge Rd. 1 two weeks ago. Albeit on the tapeta surface. But trainer Mike De Kock said post-race that day that he felt Musir was even better on turf, and surface switch to turf was likely coming in order for Musir to be aimed at the G1 Dubai Duty Free on world cup night. Musir's form on turf in the G2 Topkapi Trophy in Turkey, the G1 Champions Mile in Hong Kong, and the G2 Hungerford Stakes in Great Britain suggest that Mike De Kock may be right about him being as equally good on turf as he's been on tapeta? Rajsaman is also one of the higher rated horses in the Al Rashidiya field. He didn't run particularly well in either of his 2 carnival starts a year ago. But he comes back to Dubai in 2012 bolstering much better form. Having won beaten Byword to win the G2 Prix Du Muguet, and Rio De La Plata in the G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein. Rajsman also had 3rd place finishes behind Goldikova in the G1 Prix D' Ispahan and Excelebration in the G1 Prix Du Moulin in 2011. City Style and Win For Sure are also solid competitors in this race, as both have raced very well at Meydan. Win For Sure has won at Meydan on turf, and had a couple of 3rd place runs on tapeta. City Style has only raced on tapeta up til now at Meydan, but won races in 2011 and in his first carnival start of 2012. City Style did have 2 wins on turf at the 2009 Dubai Carnival before it moved from Nad Al Sheba.
