Conor oozes spring class

Published 09/02/2013 | 16:20

OUR Conor completed a hat-trick over jumps with an impressive display to take the Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown.

Bryan Cooper brought the Dessie Hughes-trained four-year-old to challenge long-time leader Diakali two out and quickly put the race to bed.


Our Conor (100-30) pulled clear to land the spoils in style, with British raider Ruacana, trained by John Ferguson, third.


Paddy Power cut Our Conor to 6-1 joint-favourite from 12-1 for the JCB Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.


Hughes said of his five-length winner, who was a late defector from a race at Leopardstown over Christmas: "He missed a race at Christmas, but the ground was a lot better today. We were hoping the better ground today would be to our advantage.


"I was confident he would run a big race. I was happy with him today, his blood was 100%, he was working well and he was fit.


"I was happy with my horse but I was afraid of Willie's (Mullins) horse (Diakali).


"He'll go straight to the Triumph now."
