Today's meeting at Punchestown goes ahead following an inspection.

Officials had been concerned about the threat of overnight frost but following a bright morning the fixture was given the all-clear.

A seven-race card features the Grade One Morgiana Hurdle and the return to action of former Champion Hurdler hero Hurricane Fly.

Top-class supporting action comes in the shape of the Craddockstown Novice Chase and Florida Pearl Novices Chase. 

The ground is heavy, soft to heavy in places.
