Imperial Cup - Next Runs: Sandown - Saturday, 10th March 2018

The Imperial Cup is a 2 mile and 110 yard (3,319 metre) Grade 3 National Hunt hurdle race for horses aged four years and over. This handicap race is held at Sandown Park in March every year on the Saturday before the Cheltenham Festival, and includes a total of eight hurdles.

This highly competitive race was first held in 1907 and was regarded as the most prestigious hurdle event on the calendar until the Champion Hurdle was introduced some twenty years later. The winner receives an extra bonus if they also win a race at the Cheltenham Festival the following week.
