Grand National Odds: I Am Maximus 7/1 favourite to win at Aintree

The Willie Mullins-trained I Am Maximus is now the favourite to win the Grand National at Aintree on Saturday afternoon.

Victory for the Irish trainer would be his second in the race, after Hedgehunter's memorable success in 2005, and it would also be a first Grand National victory for jockey Paul Townend.

Last year's Irish National winner has been well backed in the market has he prepares to make his Aintree bow, which follows some impressive performances so far this campaign.

His seasonal reappearance in the Grade 1 Drinmore Novice Chase was particularly impressive, as the 11/1 shot was first home ahead of Found A Fifty.

The Savills Chase and Irish Gold Cup were dominated by the magnificent Galopin Des Champs, but his last outing at Fairyhouse sent out a warning to the rest of the Grand National field.

His victory in the Bobbyjo Chase was ominous as he finished 14 lengths clear of Vanillier, who was second in last year's National and is one of the leading contenders in the betting once again for this year's renewal.

The slightly softer ground should play into his hands and he has every chance of leading the Irish charge at Aintree.
