Our Conor completed a hat-trick over jumps with an impressive display to take the Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown and is now set to head the Irish challenge for the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Bryan Cooper brought the Dessie Hughes-trained four-year-old to challenge long-time leader Diakali two out in the Grade One contest and quickly put the race to bed.
Our Conor (100-30) pulled five lengths clear to land the spoils in style, with Diakali second and British raider Ruacana a further four and a quarter lengths away in third.
Hughes said: "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.
"He spoke for himself there. He is the real deal and is definitely stronger today. I was still surprised the way he won, he hardly came off the bridle.
"He goes on any ground and real good ground will suit him well. He met a lot of his hurdles wrong today but was still quick over them and jumped two out very well.
"Bryan said he was off the bridle early on, but when he got to three out he latched back on to it.
"He finished his race well and it is great to see him staying so well, that's what he'll need for his next race (the Triumph Hurdle)."
Stan James make Our Conor clear 6-1 second-favourite (from 12) for the Triumph behind the Nicky Henderson-trained Rolling Star.
Spokesman Joseph Burke said: "He jumps, gallops and stays well. He's unbeaten now from three starts over hurdles and could not be with a better trainer in Dessie Hughes."
