I would avoid those types of hounds, escpecially gravity hounds until you get some speed and find a big damage weapon. i just won recently with a half-troll warrior and DL40-70 was pretty tough until I started building my end-game kit. At your point I was concentrating on stat gain and finding speed items, speed becomes really important where you are now. Best thing to do if you absolutley have to engage them is to retreat or lure them into a corridor where you can hide around a bend and only face them 1 at a time. It's best to avoid gravity hounds in general even when you become strong they are a real pain. You are at the point of the game where you have to be selective about what you engage...angband is partly about knowing what to fight and win to fight.
