My tip is Rodriguez.
I've got a feeling that Purito is nearly ready to win a GT and the Giro might be it.
But I can't see your logic on Nibali.
Like Wiggo himself, Nibali is one of those riders who just has to hang in there when the true mountain goats pile on the pressure, but unlike Wiggo, Nibali is rubbish at pacing himself and riding to a schedule.
Nibali will have team support, but certainly no more team support than Wiggo ... probably less in quality and quantity.
