Verdict
A very weak contest provides hurdles debutante PRESENTING MEGHAN with a decent opportunity and being from the yard of Gavin Cromwell she is expected to jump well enough to prevail. Port Island's debut fourth has worked out well while she's been absent so a bold bid would be no surprise despite the layoff. Also of interest is Moonlight Eclipse who ought to improve for reverting to 2m.
