Heavy overnight rain forced officials to carry out a check at 8.30am and they determined that conditions were not suitable for racing.

The Leopardstown Racecourse account tweeted shortly after 9am: "Following greater overnight rainfall than anticipated and with further rain this morning, parts of the track have been left unfit for racing with no improvement expected."
