Princess Roania has found one to good in each of her five hurdle starts to date but she did win on the Flat at Bath in June. Exemplary has been tried over fences this year but is much better over timber and arrives in decent form. Almagest is looking well treated but needs to improve on his two runs this year. VICTOR LEUDORUM can be a little hit-or-miss and hasn't won over hurdles for four years but there was plenty of encouragement in a recent second at Worcester and he's only 2lb higher here.
