Our pick is one of the least experienced horses in the field and judging on his last run the step up to 2m4f today looks to be more than beneficial.
I Am Maximus has only had the three career starts, but he has won two out of the three runs, one in a class 2 bumper and one over hurdles in a Maiden Hurdle last time out.
He was expected to win the way he did last time out, with a run under his belt over hurdles when second to JPR One at Exeter in November before that, he was sent off 2/5 favourite.
He was quite keen early on but did jump well and responded nicely when asked of by Nico De Boinville, and he was always running on to the line.
He looked like a potential stayer in the making in his last run, and as previously mentioned the step up in trip will be warranted in this as his pedigree suggests so, it has also been mentioned that he will come on for each run, especially when the eventual step up in trip to suit comes in this.
He looks a nice talent and will get better and better with each run he has for a very much inform stable and jockey combination.
