K'chou Du Pecos Aa will improve for last month's run at Clonmel but Paul Townend, who rode him, is on board FIVE O'CLOCK and that looks significant. Beaten in a photo-finish at Auteuil in June last year, he's a half-brother to two winning jumpers in France and can make a successful start for new connections. Winning point-to-pointer Allbarone made too many mistakes on his hurdling debut at Navan but is probably better than newcomer Glendine Susie at this stage while dual point-to-point winner Direct Image has been well beaten in her three starts over timber.
