There will be an inspection of the chase course at Leopardstown to determine whether the final two races on today's card can go ahead.

Officials have decided to look at the chase course following heavy snow and sleet showers during racing this afternoon.

It was already decided before racing today that the second fence after the stands would be omitted due to ground conditions.

Great winning performance from Alexandre

Willie Mullins' Pont Alexandre, under Rury Walsh, routed seven rivals to win the Grade 2 Synergy Security Solutions Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown today, moving clear favourite for the Neptune Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham in the process.
