Morning Assembly provided Pat Fahy with his biggest win since 2004 when battling back to hold off Inish Island in the Irish Daily Mirror Novice Hurdle at Punchestown.

Only seven went to post in the Grade One over three miles, with Ballycasey all the rage for Willie Mullins, but Ruby Walsh picked the wrong horse as it was Inish Island who came out ahead of his stablemate.

Morning Assembly was sent out some way out by Davy Condon but when Inish Island loomed up he looked booked for second. However, he showed a willing attitude to eventually run out an impressive winner at 14-1.

Fahy last won at the highest level with Mariah Rollins in the Durkan New Homes Novices' Chase.
