Dessie Hughes is relishing another clash between his exciting youngster Our Conor and brilliant champion Hurricane Fly at Leopardstown later this month.

Hurricane Fly recorded a remarkable 18th Grade One victory in a much-anticipated Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown last weekend, with Our Conor not disgraced in third on his first jumping appearance since his devastating Triumph Hurdle victory.

Our Conor did have an outing in a Flat race at Naas in October, but Hughes feels it was of little use given he was sidelined by injury afterwards.

"He's come out of the race very well and we're looking forward to taking them on again at the end of the month," said the trainer.

"The run on the Flat was no use to us at all as it worked out as he was stood in his box for three weeks afterwards.

"He'll improve for the run the other day and we're looking forward to the rest of the season with him now."
