    Verdict

    Hey Bob pops up in this grade every now and then, as he did at Sedgefield two runs ago. He must have a decent chance while Pistol usually takes on stronger opposition. Calliope can’t get much lower in the weights and Canny Style’s last victory came off an 8lb higher mark. Placed twice for Warren Greatrex, THE BLACK SQUIRREL is having his first run for Harry Hogarth after a lengthy absence but he is well worth a market check with Billy Garritty good value for his 5lb claim.
