Verdict

METHAYEL hit form with a couple of wins at Brighton last month and the switch to Polytrack shouldn't be a problem. Clive Brittain's filly can continue her progress and land the hat-trick. Swift Breeze won here last season and showed her best form since when second at Wolverhampton last time, while Choral has been threatening a return to winning ways with a couple of placed efforts at this track in September. Present Danger has been below par recently but today's drop in class should see her finish closer and Drakes Drum could figure on his handicap bow.
