PLAYHARA has been a star of the summer jumps campaign, rattling up a four-timer in less than a month. She scored once for Nicky Henderson before moving on to land a hat-trick for Martin Todhunter. Despite rising no less than 26lb for that quartet of victories, she looked better than ever at Aintree last time and it will be fascinating to see just how much further the King's Theatre mare can progress. Graham Watters maintains the partnership and we'll stick with her one more time. Mr Shantu was a tad disappointing when a beaten favourite at Southwell latest but retains scope for improvement while George Fernbeck has done well since joining Brian Ellison. He stays much further than this and it will be interesting to see if, dropped in trip, he can trouble the in-form top weight.
