The lightly-raced DUNDUNAH should be up to winning a race of this nature. He led for most of the way at Newcastle last time and was only beaten in a three-way photo and with the inside berth can make all. Twentysvnthlancers ran better than expected in a slightly higher-class handicap at the last meeting and should give a good account while Young Tiger has been dropped to his lowest mark and should be winning soon. Crosse Fire has won seven races in his career, all at Southwell, but Roaring Rory has won around here though he's been beaten in sellers in his last two starts. Young Tiger has performed with credit over 6f and this stiff minimum can enable him to get competitive.
