There will be a precautionary inspection at 8am to determine whether tomorrow's meeting at Navan can go ahead.

Officials have decided to take a look in the morning due to an adverse weather forecast.

The track is currently raceable and the going is described as heavy, with the first on a six-race hurdle and bumper card due to get underway at 12.15pm.

The chase course was found to be unraceable earlier this week and, as a result, the 2m6f handicap hurdle is divided to form the six-race card.

The Cheltenham Festival - Will You Have a Flutter?

The Cheltenham Festival begins on the 14th March. The excitement is building: horses are being put through their final preparations on the gallops, jockeys are being booked for rides and anticipation is high for the four day Festival. Many thousands of racing fans will make the trip to the Cotswolds while others will watch from afar but, one thing is for sure, they will all have a bet on their fancies for the big races.
