Today's meeting at Punchestown, featuring the return of Hurricane Fly in the Dobbins & Madigans @ Punchestown Morgiana Hurdle, goes ahead following an early morning precautionary inspection.

Officials decided to have a look this morning due to the threat of frost.

< Hurricane Fly faces three rivals in the Grade 1 event, with Go Native, Captain Cee Bee and Unaccompanied all in opposition.

There is plenty of talent elsewhere on the seven race card with two Grade 2 novice chases. The action gets underway at 12.35pm.

The going remains heavy, soft to heavy in places.
