In depth

Verdict

Exeter winner Horizontal Speed failed to cope with a penalty back at the same track last time. The Last Samuri faces the same problem today as he attempts to follow up a recent victory at Kelso. That should give the edge to MY WIGWAM OR YOURS, who was beaten only a head at Huntingdon recently and hails from a yard with an outstanding strike-rate at this course. Nicky Henderson's charge is preferred to the returning Miss Duffy and can notch his first victory.
