Fair form in his qualifying runs but weakened to finish well held in Pontefract handicap on reappearance. Will need to leave that well behind.

Forecasts

Tele Red (9/4), Sea Of Charm (3/1), Bookmark (4/1), Wow William (4/1), Charlie Arthur (6/1), Franco Grasso (15/2), Snookered (8/1), Alsithee (20/1)

Verdict

SEA OF CHARM should prove suited by the drop back to Class 5 level and might prove the answer to this opening apprentice handicap. Bookmark rates an obvious danger on the back of a solid reappearance run at Pontefract. Wow William should have come on for his recent return from a break and may prove best of the rest.
