Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - He last competed on the level from a rating of 85, so OUR CONOR is difficult to ignore. Allied to that, Dessie Hughes has a pretty good handle on juvenile hurdle form through Everything Zain. The market will tell a tale as to what is expected now but Hughes did say of Our Conor in an Irish Field stable tour in mid-October: "He was a pretty good flat horse and he seems to go on any ground. He got a mile and a quarter well and there is a bit of class about him. He'll start off in a three-year-old hurdle in the next month or so and I think he'll be competitive in them." Positive Vibes is the most interesting other jumping first-timer in the line-up, and of course Arthur Moore and Davy Russell combined for a nice winner in the shape of Home Farm at Thurles on Thursday. Noel Meade and Paul Carberry are a powerful alliance at this venue and perhaps Casual Creeper can benefit enough from two starts at the winter game, to enable him to challenge for a place now. Similar remarks apply to Crouching Harry and Stay In My Heart. Vaxalco did alright at Thurles 17 days back, he generated a bit of chat on that occasion, so keep an eye on him.
