FormscanBy Tom Weekes - COSMIC INVASION was beaten 27 lengths on Irish debut so requires a leap of faith, but has French form and is suited by conditions. She flopped in her Naas blacktype bid but that was on unsuitable ground over an inadequate distance and had previously finished sixth over seven-furlongs in a juvenile Group 3 last August, which suggests a mile will now suit. Grey Leader won an ordinary maiden in April and while progression is likely, might find an on-song selection too strong. Roman Hands won an auction maiden over seven-furlongs last July and while well held on reappearance over 1m2f, finished reasonably well. However he might now prefer further than a mile and runs in a first-time tongue-tie. Sioux Spirit's form is over shorter distances while course winner Tiverton has been gelded since a disappointing March run.
