Verdict

Horizontal Speed has been running well despite carrying a penalty for his earlier win at Exeter. But he may find one too good again here in the shape of FOGGY'S WALL. The dual bumper winner made a promising start to hurdling when third at Exeter and Paul Nicholls' charge gets the nod in this. Point-to-point winner Another Brandy makes his hurdling debut after placing in bumpers and Dream Deal looks a bigger threat on his third in testing ground at Chepstow.
