Officials at Limerick will hold a precautionary inspection at 8am for the St Stephen's Day fixture.

The track has endured 22 millimetres of rain since declaration time but is currently raceable, with the ground heavy.

The feature is the Grade Two Shannon Airport Novice Chase, with Avant Tout and Outlander among the leading contenders.

Limerick is also due to race on Sunday.

No problems are anticipated for the meetings at Leopardstown and Down Royal.

The main fixture is at Leopardstown where the first of four fine days of racing features the Grade One Racing Post Novice Chase.

Conditions look like being testing.

"Leopardstown was the same as it was on Thursday - soft, heavy in places," said Turf Club press officer Cliff Noone.
