A recent recruit from France, Maxenchop is a five-year-old gelding based with Dr Richard Newland.
Previously trained by French Champion Trainer Francois Nicolle, he won a chase at Nimes in November 2018, was second twice more subsequently, and has yet to finish out of the first four in 10 starts.
Maxenchop has mixed it with come very smart performers, finishing second to the Listed-placed Dianakova and filling the same position behind the Listed winning and Gade-3 placed La Doix.
At just five years of age this scopey and imposing type has enormous potential. He remains a novice over hurdles, so his shrewd trainer could well look to exploit that option, whilst his long-term prospect over fences look first class.
