Un Temps Pour Tout will not be given the chance to win at the Cheltenham Festival for a third consecutive year.
The nine-year-old, trained by David Pipe, has not been seen since he claimed back-to-back renewals of the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Festival last March.
His trainer told www.davidpipe.com: “Sadly, we will be without one of the Pond House standard bearers this year as dual Festival hero Un Temps Pour Tout will not be bidding it to make three in a row this time around.”
Pipe continued: “His second consecutive victory in last season’s Ultima handicap chase under top weight took a long time for him to get over.
“We were aiming to bring him back for the spring but have decided to give him more time and look forward to a full campaign with him next season.”
