Verdict

It was by no means the most competitive Imperial Cup LANGER DAN landed on Saturday, but the manner of that success was hard to ignore. He's clearly ahead of the game under a 5 lb penalty, and while his stamina for this far isn't copper-bottomed, he's worth siding with. Willie Mullins pair Gentleman de Mee and Galopin des Champs aren't thrown-in on what we've seen but they command serious respect.

  1. LANGER DAN (IRE)
  2. GENTLEMAN DE MEE (FR)
  3. GALOPIN DES CHAMPS (FR)
