David Evans is well represented in this handicap by Penang Cinta and course specialist Orgre but with the former doing his best work over longer trips and the latter best in claimers we side with the potentially well treated DRUM DRAGON. Versatile as far as the ground is concerned the selection proved her stamina for this trip with a good run in defeat in bottomless ground at Haydock last time behind a subsequent winner. She looks to be carrying a feather light burden this time as she is not only given a weight for age allowance but also has six pounds removed from her back thanks to the assessor and her pilot's claim. Orgre has won all but one of his three starts at this track but they have all come in plating company and he is yet to prove himself off this mark in these ranks. Penang Cinta was disappointing off this mark last time after a comfortable success and his course form also looks off putting while Hucking Hero has plenty to prove on turf. This looks a tough end to the day and Drum Dragon can beat a rhythm to success.
