'Because' may miss national

Cheltenham runner-up Becauseicouldntsee is likely to miss the Powers Whiskey Irish Grand National as he prefers left-handed circuits.

Trainer Noel Glynn and jockey Nina Carberry had quite an experience in the National Hunt Chase as Becauseicouldntsee competed with three shoes after the fourth could not be replaced at the start of the four-miler.

Although the seven-year-old won a beginners' chase easily at Fairyhouse in February, Glynn is not keen to return there.

"He is a stone better going left-handed, so we might well put him on hold and give him a couple of months off," Glynn said.
