Collie, say, could be a speed-hog (5,3)


I believe the answer is:

sheep dog

'collie say' is the definition.
(collie is a kind of sheep dog)

'could be a speed-hog' is the wordplay.
'could be' is an anagram indicator.
'speedhog' anagrammed gives 'SHEEP DOG'.

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
