Time For Rupert (left) - back to winning ways.

Time For Rupert endorsed the promise of a solid first season's hurdling by outgunning Made In Japan and Kayf Aramis in the Boylepoker.com Handicap Hurdle.

Paul Webber's belief that the 16-1 winner could be a future Cheltenham Festival winner was boosted as William Kennedy's mount passed the post a length and three quarters ahead of his nearest pursuer.

Webber said: "He took two runs last year and needed his comeback at Ascot.

"We'd done as much as we could with him but he's grown and needs more work.

"I'm very excited because he's a horse that wants to win and as you saw he's very, very game."

Chasing will eventually be the five-year-old's game but Webber will keep him to hurdles for the remainder of the current season.

"He could be handicapped out of it, but if he keeps improving he could cross the divide into being a World Hurdle possible," the trainer added.
