Quality field fo sho.
Hard to know if any of these races will actually go in teh 12:50 or better range. Wouldn't be surprised to see a race at 13:00 pace with a fast last 600 and 12:55 winning time.
That said, Rupp 12:57.

I have no doubt that he's gonna break 13 and 27 soon, but I'm just not sure he's quite ready to at this race. Everything needs to go well (weather, pacing, health, etc.).
My heart says 12:56 but my brain says 13:04.
So 13:04 is my final answer.
very low 13 and then break 13 in August. this is his first try in Europe this season and he just had a mile below expectations, perhaps because he was not tapering for it.
ventolin, give us some analytical insight on Rupp's potential result on Saturday.
I never thought I'd say this, but this is one time where I would appreciate a ventolin analysis as well.
