Ruby Walsh will once again be on board the promising Morning Assembly in Sunday's Dobbins Outdoor Catering Florida Pearl Novice Chase at Punchestown.

Trained by Pat Fahy, the six-year-old was a surprise winner of a Grade One novice hurdle at the Punchestown Festival but his trainer has always viewed him as a chaser.

Davy Condon rode at Punchestown but missed his chasing debut having broken his leg in a fall at Cork, with Walsh deputising.

"Everything has been fine with him since the last day," said Fahy.

"Willie Mullins doesn't have a runner so Ruby is free and he was keen to ride him again.

"There doesn't seem to be much hoo-ha about him and that suits me fine, let him go and win a good race first before people start talking about  him.

"Everyone had him down as a mudlark but it wasn't that soft the last day he ran and it won't be at the weekend. It's two-six so he's going up in trip, which is a help."
