Verdict

Cinders And Ashes went on to land the Supreme Novices' at Cheltenham after winning this trial in 2012 and UN TEMPS POUR TOUT is entered in this year's renewal. A £450,000 purchase, David Pipe's charge won Listed and Grade 3 hurdle races in France and a provisional rating of 147 suggests he's good enough to make a winning start for new connections. Zamdy Man has returned to action much improved and landed a Listed event over track and trip in November while Stand To Reason has taken well to hurdling, although he was left clear at the last when scoring at Newbury on his latest start. Meadowcroft Boy remains unbeaten after winning easily on his hurdling debut and is worth a try in this company but River Clare and Abracadabra Sivola look up against it.
