Noel Glynn has given Becauseicouldntsee the green light to contest the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup at Cheltenham next Thursday.
Second in the four-mile National Hunt Cup two years ago, he was well fancied for the Grand National last year but fell at the second fence.
The nine-year-old was last seen chasing home Galileo’s Choice over hurdles and lost nothing in defeat on that occasion.
“I’m very happy with him and hopefully we’ll go for the Kim Muir,” said County Clare-based Glynn.
“He was second in the four-miler two years ago, but he missed Cheltenham last year.
“I’m hoping Nina (Carberry) will ride him again, although she hasn’t fully committed yet.
“She gets on well with him and I probably should have left her on him in the National.
