Facts takes Galmoy test

Robert Tyner admits he will be satisfied with place money from Footy Facts when the 11-year-old takes on five rivals in the rearranged Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran Park.

The Oscar gelding has been tackling handicaps of late and was second of 24 under top weight behind The Shepherd at Leopardstown last month.

Tyner said: "If it was a handicap he'd been getting weight from a good few of them, but he's in really good form. He'll like the trip and he'll like the ground. We're hoping to get a bit of place money."

Opposition is headed by the Willie Mullins-trained Mourad and Eamonn O'Connell's Powerstation, who were first and second in the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown last month.

A small but select field is completed by the Edward O'Grady-trained Jumbo Rio, Thomas Mullins' Oscar Dan Dan and Moskova from Paul Nolan's stable.
