Imperial Commander stayed-on strongly up the hill for trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies and jockey Paddy Brennan to land the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup.
The 7-1 chance travelled powerfully all the way and with Kauto Star falling four fences out, only 2008 Gold Cup winner Denman could stay with him on the turn for home.
Imperial Commander was easily travelling the best of the two, however, and after going clear on the run to the last, he powered away on the run-in to win with seven lengths to spare.
