Davids Lad is expected to make his re-appearance in this month's Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse.
Davids Lad has already enjoyed success at Fairyhouse
The horse, who won the 2001 race, was due to take part in the Aintree Grand National but was banned for 42 days at Naas in February after finishing last in a race.
The stewards ruled that the race had been used as a schooling ground.
The horse's owners, the Eddie Joe's Racing Syndicate failed in an Irish Supreme Court appeal to have the ban overturned and he missed out on the Liverpool race.
But after being allotted 10st 10lbs, trainer Tony Martin says the horse is on course for the Easter Monday contest.
"He definitely runs. He's in good form and definitely has a chance. Timmy Murphy will ride him," says Martin.
Martell Cognac Cup winner First Gold, trained by Francois Doumen heads the weights on 12st and is the first French-trained entry for
the three miles five furlongs race.
The 2002 winner, the Bunny Boiler, who fell at the first fence at Aintree last Saturday, will be hoping for better luck this time around.
Ted Walsh has two entries, the 2000 winner Commanche Court, who is rated by Walsh as only a probable at this stage, and Rince Ri who will carry 11st 3lbs.
"Rince Ri is a definite runner providing we get some rain," said Walsh. "If it is safe or better he will take part."
Foxchapel King has second top weight of 11st 8lbs but trainer Mouse Morris says he may be aimed instead at the Heineken Chase at Punchestown or the attheraces Gold Cup at Sandown.
Among the other entries are Grand National runners Chives, Killusty, Red Striker and Maximize, as well as Jonjo O'Neill's Sudden Shock, winner of the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
