Conor set for spring assignment

Our Conor will next hit the track at Leopardstown in February

Our Conor will put his unbeaten record over obstacles on the line in the Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown on February 9.

The four-year-old has impressed at Navan and Fairyhouse since switching his attentions to the jumping game and will bid to enhance his claims for the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham with victory at Grade One level on Hennessy day.

Our Conor is likely to be joined at Leopardstown by fellow Dessie Hughes-trained runner Minsk.

Following good efforts in the Royal Bond at Fairyhouse and the Slaney Novice Hurdle at Naas, he is set to take his chance in the Deloitte Novice Hurdle.

"Our Conor is progressing well and he'll go to Leopardstown on February 9 for the Grade One juvenile," said Hughes.

"Minsk will go on the same day for the Deloitte and we'll see about Cheltenham after that for the both of them."
