Any support for the 107-rated hurdler Blazing Desert and the bumper winner Chickini would arouse some interest however ACQUAINTED sets a strong standard on her Chester run and is nominated accordingly. Barry Hills targets races at Chester so it was no surprise to see this Shamardal filly run a great race behind Gertrude Bell in the Cheshire Oaks. She only needs to run within 20lbs of that in all likelihood to win this and should prove hard to beat. Cat O' Nine Tails shaped well behind Kronful at Newcastle and is bred to improve with racing, Ocean Club steps up in trip after a break over the winter, whilst Blackmore looks like an interesting contender and needs watching for market support. Chickini won at Kelso on debut but then didn't see the racetrack for some time; she has been given a break since a reappearance run in March and is not discounted given her trainer's record with bumper horses that go flat racing. Street Runner and Tinseltown will both be eligible for handicaps after this run so it looks wise to stick with Acquainted in this finale. [Nic Doggett]
