Quote: from SwallowCottage on 10:21 pm on Dec. 10, 2006[br]I think that it’s too early to be talking about Kauto Star as a champion.<br>Would Best Mate have beaten Desert Orchid over 2m4f – 3m . At Cheltenham – YES. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â At Kempton – NO. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â <br>
<br>Dessie was placed over 2 miles at Cheltenham more than once. I think he’d’ve possibly still beaten Best Mate at Cheltenham even though he was well below his best there.
Kauto Star I agree he’s got to win the big races first but talentwise he’s way better than Best Mate. Interestingly after only one three mile performance RPR and BHB already have Kauto Star way higher rated than Best Mate.
