First run in 1907, the Imperial Cup has a long and prestigious history.

Before the Cheltenham Festival took shape in 1927 with the Champion Hurdle, the Imperial Cup was considered the top two mile hurdle race of the National Hunt season.

London Prize might not hit the heights of previous winners such as Trespasser, Lanzarote and Ekbalco, but it is still an important race with a valuable prize.

Despite not really liking the ground at Sandown, and then getting shuffled back on the turn for home, Tom O’Brien brought London Prize with a steady run up the straight.

Taking the lead at the last, he stayed on well up the hill to beat the favourite by a length at the line.
