This all revolves around the ability of PLAYHARA to go to the well yet again after a busy and productive period which saw her land four straight successes in impressive fashion before falling at Cartmel in search of the five-timer. After a month or so off, she returned to action with a fair second at Perth ten days ago but is now 26lb higher than when instigating her winning spree. However, the promising Ryan Day takes 7lb off her back and this doesn't look the strongest of races. Hopefully, she'll return to winning ways. Vuvuzela continues to give the impression of one with unfulfilled potential but a recent third of ten to Houston Dynimo was an effort that brings him into contention. Right To Rule is becoming exposed and Renegotiate is a possible but unproven at this trip.
