Punchestown onHeadlines
Punchestown action

Today's meeting at Punchestown is going 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 Hurdle hero Hurricane Fly. Unaccompanied, however, has been declared a non-runner. The Dermot Weld-trained mare has been reported in season, according to Horse Racing Ireland.

Her defection leaves a field of three for the Grade One event - Hurricane Fly, Go Native and Captain Cee Bee.

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.

Racecourse manager Richie Galway told At The Races: "It was very easy to call it on, the frost didn't really develop. It's perfectly raceable and we are looking forward to a great day's racing.

"It stacks up well, the Morgiana is as good a race as we'll see and the Craddockstown with Oscars Well and Baily Green, it's very exciting.

"We'll see lots of future winners I'd say through the day, it's one not to miss."
