A head-to-head on paper and while all eyes will be on Nicky Henderson’s I Am Maximus, it could be worth taking a chance on his Phillip Hobbs-trained counterpart.

Phillip Hobbs has three runners at Exeter on Wednesday afternoon

The aforementioned son of Authorized beat My Drogo in a bumper at Cheltenham on his only appearance to date last year, but this is a tough first ask over hurdles against Tom O’Brien’s mount who already has some solid form in the book.

He scored a facile success at Worcester before chasing home a subsequent winner in the Persian War, so looks to have solid claims back down in trip.

Charlie Longsdon’s gelding is a duel point-to-point winner so looks a handy recruit to this sphere after finishing third in a Doncaster Grade 2 when last seen.

That was his first start at this trip under rules so there should be bags more to come now tackling the larger obstacles with some solid timber form in the book from last campaign, particularly at Carlisle.

Lord Accord hasn’t put a foot wrong over fences this term and looks the obvious alternative to the selection, albeit he must concede 5lb.
