Officials at the Dublin circuit were on red alert after a forecast for stormy conditions heading into Friday morning.

And while another 14 millimetres of rainfall has turned the ground soft, the high-class card has been given the go-ahead.

Horse Racing Ireland tweeted: "Leopardstown to proceed today as planned, ground now soft following 14mm rain overnight. Forecast showers today with winds easing."
