Rattan's two runs for Willie Mullins after a very long absence haven't produced much but improvement is likely and he can't be dismissed. Baily Green ran well behind Profit Margin at Cork but found 2m4f beyond him when attempting to make all at Leopardstown. He should do better here but GREAT VALUE looks the one to be with. Dessie Hughes' charge has steadily improved over timber and his second to Johnny McGeeney at Naas last month is the stand-out recent hurdling form here. Marlos Moment has been a disappointment since his excellent form behind Pittoni a year ago but one to note is the newcomer Blaze Of Fire, a classy performer on the Flat who beat Zaidpour at Longchamp in 2009.
