Graylyn Valentino has his first start in an amateurs event and though his only victory came on Polytrack his overall form puts him in the frame. Khajaaly has won three times in his career, all at Wolverhampton, but SUPA SEEKER gained his first ever success in an apprentice race at Warwick last week and can race here from a lower mark so has to be the selection. Jonnie Skull has now had 127 races and won 13 of them, a superb return for a horse who has never been rated above 67 in his long career. He'll be a good ride for his young pilot and it would be no shock if this were victory number 14.
