Fahy eyes Topaz Morning glory

Morning Assembly will bid to stretch his 100% record over fences to three in the Topaz Novice Chase at Leopardstown on December 29.

After two wins at Punchestown, where he took the scalp of Sunday's Drinmore Novice Chase scorer Don Cossack, the Pat Fahy-trained six-year-old is now aiming for Grade One glory.

"I was delighted with him the last day and he has come out of the race in great form," said Fahy.

"The further he goes, the better and three miles around Leopardstown should suit him. He likes a bit of decent ground and he is improving all the time."
