It’s set to be mainly dry today with a risk of light showers in the late afternoon (2-3mm of rain) and then mainly dry for tomorrow.

There’s jumping at Kilbeggan, and it’s yielding, good to yielding in places there with the first of seven races off at 2.15pm. It’s forecast to be mainly dry with a slight risk of showers later.

Cork’s ground is yielding for their N.H. card on Sunday after 2mm of rain in the last 24 hours. There’s a chance of showers today and it’s predicted to be mainly dry tomorrow.
