Weapon's Amnesty could have his first run since the 2010 Cheltenham Festival next month.

The 9yo, last seen winning the RSA Chase, is pleasing trainer Charles Byrnes, who is considering running him in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown on December 28th.

"Weapon's Amnesty is back in full training and I'm happy enough with him," said the Co Limerick handler.

"He had quite a bad leg injury but I will probably make an entry for him at Christmas time.

"It's not easy to place him so it will probably have to be the Lexus."

Lieutenant not a definite for the Hennessy

Mouse Morris will wait until the middle of the week before deciding whether to let First Lieutenant take his chance in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury on Saturday.
