Last Updated: 08/03/18 11:55am
Call Me Lord tops 17 contenders for the Matchbook Imperial Cup at Sandown on Saturday.
The five-year-old is one of two runners for Nicky Henderson, who also fields ante-post favourite Whatswrongwithyou in the two-mile affair, which offers the winner a #100,000 bonus if they can follow up in any race at next week's Cheltenham Festival.
Dr Richard Newland's Le Patriote and the David Pipe-trained Friday Night Light are other leading contenders in the betting with Cheltenham entries.
The Pipe-trained Gaspara was the last horse to land the Imperial Cup bonus when winning the Fred Winter at the Festival in 2007.
Evan Williams' Silver Streak, Fidux from Alan King's yard and Chris Gordon's Highway One O One also feature prominently in the market, while Sophie Leech saddles Birch Hill and Man Of Plenty.
