THE HAPPY PRINCE was no match for a speedy type at Tipperary but showed enough to suggest he may be about to end a long losing sequence. Flight Risk has an obvious chance on overall form, and last year's winner Jamesie could not be ruled out. [Alan Sweetman]

A long since he won a race, latest success coning at 50-1 in 2015 Gladness Stakes; has again shown a smart level of form this term; highest-rated runner, retaining the 108 mark gained with his head second to Toscanini at the Curragh in June; only fifth of seven in event won by the same horse at the Curragh last time.

Improved sprinter last year; has made further progress this term, winning a handicap here in June and landing the Shergar Cup Dash Handicap over 5f at Ascot four weeks ago; up 15lb since the start of the season and now holds a rating that gives him every chance in this company

Ran up a hat-trick of 5f victories in April/May to earn a rise in class; faced tough task last time, but comes into the reckoning on form such as his second to Spirit Quartz in a 5f Listed event at Cork.

Poor strike-rate overall, with both wins gained early in his career; however, should not be too far away here if reproducing form of his second behind the British-trained Spirit Quartz in a Listed 5f event at Tipperary nine days ago; longer trip and stiffer track should suit.

Group 1 winner for David O'Meara in 2014, beating Irish-trained Gordon Lord Byron in Betfred Sprint Cup; nowhere near that form in 2015; no sign batteries have been recharged by Adrian Keatley, though did not run too badly in two Curragh outings before last of 27 in Stewards' Cup at Goodwood.

8-66, including this race last year, two subsequent wins have been at Dundalk; has run well in a couple of Listed races this term and gave a good account when ninth in the 27-runner Stewards' Cup; just behind Flight Risk in a Group 3 event at the Curragh last time.
