Dessie Hughes (right): Trainer of Our Conor

Our Conor made the perfect start to his career over obstacles with a comfortable victory in the Follow Navan Racecourse Facebook Maiden Hurdle at Navan.

A dual winner on the level and only once out of the first three, the youngster was a warm order as the 8-13 favourite for his jumping debut.

Bryan Cooper kept things simple on board the Dessie Hughes inmate and was always travelling powerfully towards the head of affairs.

Casual Creeper momentarily loomed up as a danger at the top of the home straight, but Our Conor soon saw off his attentions and pulled right away after winging the final flight to register an eight-and-a-half-length victory.

Hughes said: "He can jump. He schooled well from day one. He was fit and his form was good on the Flat.

"He handles heavy ground and I suppose it will be Christmas next for him.

"He is a nice three-year-old."

Sky Bet introduced him as 20/1 co-favourite for the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.
