Yeah Baby is proving difficult to place but Jarlath has already won a couple of times at Kempton this year and will be a danger if transferring that form to Turf. Cosette will almost certainly improve for the step up in trip but LIGHTNING SHOWER continues to head in the right direction and gets a narrow vote. He showed he handles soft ground and Turf when an unlucky fourth over a slightly shorter trip at Nottingham earlier this month.
