Kauto Star's half-brother doesn't have the level of ability as the racing great, though he has shown some qualities on the track and he had been steadily progressive over fences before the handicapper took charge. There's not much between the front few in the market on ratings and it's no surprise to have seen money for Charlie Longsdon's inmate off level weights in this "Jumpers' Bumper".
It's never a surprise to see one owned by JP McManus, trained by Jonjo O'Neill and ridden by AP McCoy being gambled as Well Hello There has this morning. His two starts this year haven't been great but as a result he has dropped 7lbs to a handicap mark of 123 and if he can find something like his head 2nd at Ascot just 13 months ago, he'd have a good chance.
Jeremy Scott's ten-year-old is very lightly raced for one of his age so you'd think he could be unexposed in handicaps. Last year he showed a good and consistent level of form in novice chases, where he finished out of the front two on just one start out of five. His three runs this year haven't inspired much confidence, though he has been tested at a good level, and off a mark of 123 he has to be of interest.
