The threat of overnight frost had forced clerk of the course Joe Collins to call an 8am inspection but he decided to bring that forward as overnight conditions were not as bad as feared.
The feature contest is due to see former Champion Hurdle hero Hurricane Fly take on Go Native and Captain Cee Bee in the Dobbins & Madigans @Punchestown Morgiana Hurdle.
Unaccompanied has, however, been declared a non-runner for the race as the Dermot Weld-trained mare is in season.
Top-class supporting action comes in the shape of the Craddockstown Novice Chase and Florida Pearl Novices Chase.
The seven-race card gets underway at 12.35 and the going is officially heavy, soft to heavy in places.
