Morning Assembly Betting
Morning Assembly is a Grade 2-winning novice chaser, who is now aiming to record a career best success in the 2016 Crabbie's Grand National at Aintree on April 9, as the Irish raider aims to bag glory for Pat Fahy in the world's greatest steeplechase, which will see a competitive field line up on Merseyside.
- 15th March 2016 - Cheltenham - Ultima Handicap Chase - 3m, 1f - 4th
- 13th February 2016 - Gowran Park - Red Mills Chase - 2m, 4f - 2nd
- 30th January 2016 - Fairyhouse - Fairyhouse Rated Chase - 2m, 5f - 2nd
Morning Assembly has been a model of consistency throughout his career, as the Pat Fahy-trained nine-year-old has only been out of the first three in two of his 14 starts, so the Irish raider will be hoping to build on that fine record when he has his first crack at the Crabbie's Grand National at Aintree.
He kicked off the season with narrow second placed finish behind Bridgets Pet at Fairyhouse, while he yet again had to settle for the silver medal spot when being comfortably beaten by Henry de Bromhead's Smashing in the Grade 2 Red Mills Chase at Gowran Park in February.
He then relished a step up in trip at the Cheltenham Festival, as he produced a fine effort to finish fourth to Un Temps Pour Tout in the Ultima Handicap Chase, and he will now aim to continue on an upward curve and runs off an intriguing handicap mark in the Grand National on April 9.

VERDICT: Morning Assembly has been a model of consistency throughout his career, and if he takes to this unique Aintree test then he could well be a possible contender off 10st 9lb and is certainly worth an each-way look for punters.
