Pipe hopes Temps’ time is now
David Pipe felt Un Temps Pour Tout's victory at Aintree on Saturday came at the "ideal time" ahead of the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury later this month.
Un Temps Pour Tout is expected to have come on for Aintree
Pipe feels the Cheltenham Festival winner could be well weighted for the big race on November 26 after he stayed on nicely at the Merseyside circuit to win by two lengths.
The Pond House handler told www.davidpipe.com: "I was delighted by the reappearance effort of Un Temps Pour Tout in the BTRC Hurdle at Aintree on Saturday.
"A two-mile-four-furlong hurdle race didn't necessarily provide him with his optimum conditions, although it came at the ideal time for a prep run ahead of the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury in three weeks' time.
"Tom Scudamore set a sensible gallop aboard our seven-year-old and he kept finding in the straight without Tom ever having to get too serious with him.
"The run will have put him helped bring him on and I am looking forward to Newbury where his chase mark of 158 should put him on a nice racing weight."
