Leopardstown: No longer watering
The going at Leopardstown has been changed to good to firm after officials finished watering the track ahead of Saturday's fixture .
Parts of the Foxrock circuit were described as firm on Monday, but there has been a slight ease in conditions.
Leopardstown chief executive Pat Keogh is not expecting any further watering of the track, with rain forecast later in the week.
Keogh said: "Parts of the track were firm on Monday, but we watered Monday afternoon and on Tuesday and now it's good to firm all round.
"We've ceased watering. There could be some rain coming in on Friday or Saturday, so we'll just have to monitor things as we go along.
"There is a lovely covering of grass and the track is in beautiful condition.
"We're all looking forward to a great day's racing."
Leopardstown stages an eight-race card on Saturday, with the Red Mills Irish Champion Stakes taking top billing.
