Holden Eagle went close over 2m last time but is not the most consistent, while Port Hill has claims on his earlier fourth over C&D despite a poor effort last month. Corvette went the closest yet to losing her maiden tag when second over a longer trip here last month and Satwa Ballerina was placed over track and trip in January. However, GAP OF DUNLOE won a race at Dundalk when trained in Ireland and gets the token vote racing off the same mark on his debut for Evan Williams.
