Noel Glynn is a very happy trainer following Becauseicouldntsee’s good solid run at the recent 2012 Cheltenham Festival when he finished second in the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup.
The nine-year-old was beaten only by Jonjo O’Neill’s fast-finishing Sunnyhillboy after running prominently throughout, and heads to Aintree with a decent run under his belt.

Despite falling at the second fence in the 2011 Grand National Glynn has high hopes he will fare much better next month.
“It was a good run at Cheltenham and it was just a pity that the winner didn’t get into the Pertemps, which Jonjo said was his first choice with Sunnyhillboy,” said the County Clare handler.
“He’s run a blinder, though, he jumped great and we’re looking forward to Aintree.
“It’s taken a bit out of him, he was cooped up in a small box for a few days and then there was the travelling so I hope he recovers. He’s used to being out in a field day and night.
“He’s fit as a flea, which is a bonus, and I just hope he gets further than last year.
“I’d like Nina (Carberry) to ride him in the National but she might have to ride her Uncle Arthur’s (Moore) horse (Organisedconfusion) so Davy Condon might ride.”
Becauseicouldntsee has been given a very low 10-03 for the National and is currently around 20/1 with Paddy Power Bookmakers.BET NOW - CLICK HERE
