The returning Hitchens to the Dubai World Cup Carnival his third time here, has to take on Reynaldothewizard who beat him twice last year in the Listed Dubawi Stakes sponsored by Dubai Duty Free Full Of Surprises. They last met in Dubai World Cup day Dubai Golden Shaheen were Reynaldothewizard won well showing his liking for the Tapeta surface, while it is the first race back for "The Wizard" the David Barron trained Hitchens has been very busy running nine times with one win at the Curragh in the Group 3 Queensferry Stakes in August.

I have picked Reynaldothewizard in this ridden by Richard Mullen and trained by Satish Seemar due to him running fresh and having no penalty to carry from his Group 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen win. Hitchens will be ridden by Silvestre De Sousa who is in great form so he may run a big race too.
