The answer to your main question is always going to be "maybe," but the workout itself doesn't indicate sub-9:00 fitness. That's a lot of rest for reps of that length at 9:00 pace. I think a lot of 9:15-ish runners could run that workout.
By the way, did you run the race? It just occurred to me that "next weekend" may have already been this last weekend, unless you meant the upcoming weekend of May 8-9. Either way, let us know how it goes/went.

Next weekend I’m in a great race where there should be a few guys breaking 9. I just did my final hard workout a couple days ago to prepare. It was (1000, 800, 600, 400, 200), (800, 600, 400, 200). I took two minutes between reps and five minutes between the two sets. I wore flats for this, and I hit (2:48, 2:15, 1:40, 65, 30), (2:16, 1:42, 67, 30). First, based off of this workout alone, does it seem plausible to break 9? Assuming perfect conditions.
For further context, my current Pr is 9:20 from this past indoor season with a mask on. I split 4:45-4:35 in that race. I have not ran a hard 3200 since. I am a more aerobic runner. My best 800 this track season was a 2:01 in a relay split, but I’m sure that I could break 2 comfortably in an open race (I haven’t had many chances at the 800). I have only run a 56 400, but I’m sure that I could bust out a 54 in a race. This past xc season I ran 15:19 in a grass 5k. If any more context is needed, I’ll answer anything. This question is mostly to assess my recent workout and what it “predicts.”
