David Pipe has issued a warning over the participation at next week's Cheltenham Festival of Un Temps Pour Tout.

Un Temps Pour Tout: Could miss Cheltenham

Bought for £450,000 after finishing third in a Grade One in France, the five-year-old returned lame after his routine exercise on Friday morning.

He holds options in the Neptune Novices' Hurdle and the Coral Cup, and after his win at Ascot last month he would appear to have sound claims in either race.

However, Pipe tweeted that he was now an unlikely runner.

"Un Temps Pour Tout was lame after exercise today and is very doubtful for Cheltenham," he said.
