Cosmic Breeze thrives on fast ground and followed an excellent second to Lough Mist at Navan with a victory from a 9lbs higher mark on the same track on Sunday. Ger Lyons has decided to let him take his chance with a 5lbs penalty and another big run looks assured. Johnstown Lad divides his time between racing in the UK and Ireland and though generally thereabouts he may be better over another furlong. Moonlight Rock's only start over this trip was probably her best when a close fourth behind Airspace at Navan while Fairy Flow ran really well over today's C&D in April and should be considered. With just three runs under her belt, KRISTAL XENIA has more scope than most of her rivals and landed a maiden at Navan on only her second start. She made a very promising return behind Miss Gorica on the same track last month and should have come on enough to take this from the same mark.
