Eleven year old WESTERN BOY can make a winning handicap chase debut. A smart type on his day, he finished seventh to Vautour in the Supreme Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham, is a winner at the Punchestown festival and while his career has been hit by injuries, has returned to form in recent times and comes here following two useful recent runs. He competes from a chase rating of just 106 and with age not yet hindering him, he can take plenty beating. Weihnachts is winless from 13 starts but has hinted at potential in handicaps. He should come on from his Galway reappearance run but might struggle to beat the selection. JP McManus' other runner Nearly Nama'd, a 12yo, has shown enough recently to suggest he can get involved in handicaps as his rating has fallen but this looks quite competitive. All The Chimneys, another in receipt of free travel, is a fine servant who comes here following a good run at Tipperary latest and has solid place claims. Flamingo's Court was a winner at Thurles in February two days before sent black-type hunting and while she could get involved, lacks a recent outing. Free-going Kavanaghs Corner did well last winter but races from a joint career-high mark.
