Imperial Cup Trends

Staged at Sandown racecourse the Paddy Power Imperial Cup in a hurdle race run over 2m 1/2f. Run just days before the start of the Cheltenham Festival.

In recent years that incentive has seen powerful stables like Henderson and Hobbs target the race, but it’s the Pipe yard that hold the best recent record – winning the race four times in the last 16 years and 9 times in all.

The last horses to win the Imperial Cup and then go onto land a Festival race the following week are Olympian (1993), Blowing Wind (1998) and Gaspara (2007). While the 2016 winner – Flying Angel – only just failed to land the bonus after running second in the Martin Pipe Conditionals race. Three of the last four winners – Malaya, London Prize and Mr Antolini – didn’t go onto run at the Cheltenham Festival, but the 2021 winner - Langer Dan - was another that only just failed to land the bonus when second in the Martin Pipe Conditional Hurdle race six days later.

Here at GEEGEEZ we take a look back at recent winners and give you all the key stats to take into the 2022 renewal – this year run on Saturday 12th March.
