EXCLUSIVE SELECTION (TUESDAY)

16:50 Nottingham Princess Roania was sent off an evens favourite when last tried over fourteen furlongs but could only manage third and is 2lbs higher today, while both Brigadoon and On Fire have been in great form on the all-weather in recent months but Brigadoon has disappointed on previous trips to Nottingham and On Fire is yet to get involved in all previous runs on turf. In comparison, eleven year old Hallstatt returns to a course where he has made the frame in nine from thirteen and boasts a 40% winning strike rate over course and distance. He is 3lbs lower than his last victory here and all victories have come on either good or good-to-firm ground so with conditions to suit and most of his rivals either unproven over track, trip or on turf he is taken to add to his impressive tally here. HALLSTATT (WIN)
