Edward O'Grady was happy he made the right choice for Staying Article after the seven-year-old gelding won the Follow Us On Facebook Hurdle at Cork.

The 5-4 shot was always close to the pace before taking the lead four out, after which he stayed on to defeat odds-on favourite Blackstairmountain by a length.

O'Grady said: "We had three options with Staying Article this weekend - either come here for this, or else go to either Punchestown or Cheltenham.

"He was 10lb 'wrong' with Blackstairmountain today that was a good confidence-booster for him.

"He's in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse but I might instead go for a race there the day before. That was a good performance."
