Pipe: Could run Un Temps Pour Tout at Haydock

Pipe: Could run Un Temps Pour Tout at Haydock

David Pipe could unleash his expensive purchase Un Temps Pour Tout in a potentially fascinating Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices' Hurdle at Haydock on Saturday.

The Grade Two, registered as the Rossington Main Novices' Hurdle, has attracted 13 six-day entries including Un Temps Pour Tout, who could make his British debut in the contest having changed hands for 450,000 guineas at the DBS Hennessy Sale at Newbury.

He was a Grade Three winner over hurdles in his native France and finished seven lengths off Ptit Zig in third when favourite For a Grade One at Auteuil in November.

"We bought him five or six weeks ago and he has some very good form to his name in France," Pipe said. "He's been pleasing in his work at home, he's got options this weekend and the plan is to run in one of them.

"He's in the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices' Hurdle at Haydock and the 2m3f handicap hurdle at Ascot (as well as a novices' hurdle at Taunton). We'll look at the opposition and the ground and decide where he goes later in the week. Hopefully he's a nice horse for the future."

Irish champion trainer Willie Mullins has engaged Navan winner Sizing Tennessee, Leopardstown scorer Sure Reef and Valseur Lido, unbeaten in two starts at Cork and Navan this term.

Nicky Henderson's Stand To Reason has won his two starts to date this term while Zamdy Man, trained by Venetia Williams, beat subsequent winner Oscar Hoof over Saturday's course and distance last time.

Sgt Reckless has been keeping good company of late and the entries are completed by Abracadabra Sivola, Big Casino, It's High Time, Maybe I Won't, Meadowcroft Boy and River Clare.

Michael Shinners, Racing PR Manager at Sky Bet, said: "We are delighted with the quality of entries for the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices' Hurdle.

"David Pipe could be represented by the potentially very exciting Un Temps Pour Tout while it will be interesting to see if Ireland's champion trainer, Willie Mullins, decides to send over any of his three entries. Stand To Reason was a useful performer on the Flat and has done nothing wrong in winning both starts for Nicky Henderson.

"Last weekend didn't tell us a great deal but hopefully Saturday's race will give us some clues in the build-up to the opening race of the Cheltenham Festival - the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle."
