Dorans Pride emerged victorious over Imperial Call at Clonmel yesterday, but a solid performance from the runner-up announced that he is again a Gold Cup contender.

Dorans Pride remains 6-1 favourite for the Cheltenham showpiece after his nine-length victory in the three-runner Morris Oil Chase, but Imperial Call, the 1996 Gold Cup winner, was cut to 12-1 by William Hill (from 16-1) after a promising effort on his first outing since being pulled up in this year's Gold Cup.
