Martello Tower is set to tackle the Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran later this month after pleasing connections on his return to action at Leopardstown.

The Mags Mullins-trained eight-year-old was making his first start of the season when finishing third to Prince Of Scars in the Grade One Christmas Hurdle.

It was his first run since a hard-fought victory in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

"We were delighted with the Leopardstown run as he would have needed it," said Mullins.

"We have to see whether he's good enough in that open class now.

"He'll go to Gowran for the Galmoy Hurdle, all being well."
