Verdict

Argentino, placed on the Flat in France, attracted some support on his debut for Willie Mullins at Navan but jumped poorly and was well beaten. The lightly-raced Zafayan ran well for a long way on his hurdling bow at Punchestown and should have come on enough to get into the action while Battle Hymn makes a quick reappearance after falling at Fairyhouse on Sunday. He was well supported that day after an encouraging opening effort over timber but it's another who fell at that meeting, BAILY CLOUD, who looks the one to be on. He started a short-priced favourite that day, which is hardly surprising given his earlier close second to Nichols Canyon at Cork, and was still in the lead and going well when coming to grief at the second last. From Frost should improve in time and looks best of the remainder.
