MUNHAMER was fancied to make a winning debut at Doncaster 10 days ago when sent off favourite. He could only manage third behind Aetna but today's combination of an extra furlong and faster going can see him off the mark. Duke Of Orange and Yahilwa showed a similar level of form over 6f last season but one of the newcomers could prove a bigger threat. The latter's stablemate Araajmh is out of a Group 1 winner and Naaz is a half-brother to five winners. Autspread can also boast a host of winning relatives and Unex Modigliani is another to note for any strong support in the betting.
