Imperial Cup Betting

The Imperial Cup is one of the biggest handicap races of the horse racing season and it takes place each year at Sandown Park in early March. The race itself is a Grade Three contest, run over 2 miles and 110 yards, with horses aged four years old and over taking part.

It takes place just a few days before the start of the Cheltenham Festival so there is always huge interest in the betting market, particularly as the Imperial Cup sponsors offer a financial bonus prize to the winner if it goes on to win any race during the following week's Festival.

Olympian, Blowing Wind and Gaspara have landed the bonus in the past, with Gaspara enhancing the Pipe family's fine record in the Imperial Cup. Runners from the yard of Pipe can often be worth a look in the betting market as they have enjoyed a fine strike rate in this particular race.
