Verdict

Archimento is penalised for an easy victory at Fontwell in September and didn't stay 2m4f at Wincanton last time. Book Of Invasions makes his hurdling debut having won a Doncaster bumper in December and was taking on Grade 2 company on his final start at Aintree. Buckland Boy won twice over 1m4f at Thirsk in the summer though has virtually refused to race the last twice but this looks a good opportunity for NOW CHILDREN to make a successful start over timber. Four times a winner on the Flat for Clive Cox including a Class 2 handicap at Goodwood last October, he's joined Dan Skelton and looks a smart recruit. Rock On Tiger has shown potential in two bumpers while Volunteer was only beaten a head on his bumper debut here in January.
