Pat Fahy expects Morning Assembly to make plenty of progress after finishing a narrow second on his return from a long lay-off at Fairyhouse on Saturday.

Having his first run since April 2014, Morning Assembly was beaten just a head in a rated chase, leaving Fahy to consider the next target for his Grade One-placed chaser.

Fahy said: "I'm extremely happy with that. I felt coming here if he was involved over the last few fences I'd be happy, but to battle back the way he did was great.

"I've never bullied him to get to this stage. We have eased him back to get where we are, and he has a number of options now including at Haydock over an extra mile, and the Bobbyjo back here.

"Davy (Russell) liked him, and he should improve from that. However, the ground is the key and it probably won't last like that for much longer."
