Irish racing on Wednesday comes from Naas
Irish racing on Wednesday comes from Naas

Timeform's SmartPlays team target Naas on Wednesday.

"While Aidan O’Brien has taken the last three renewals of this race the value appears to lie with the Jim Bolger-trained Intensical."

Prance - 18:25 Naas

Prance bids to make it third time lucky for the in-form David Wachman. A regally-bred filly, by Danehill Dancer out of a Galileo mare, whose two starts to date have seen her step up each time and hopefully she'll be ridden a bit more prominently this time around. Ultimately, she may be running over a trip short of her best, but nonetheless has standout credentials.

Ningxai - 20:35 Naas

Ningxai looks certain to go close. Unlucky not to be closer last time when hampered a furlong out, his mark as a result has remained untouched. With the Ger Lyons stable in a rich vein of form and Colin Keane getting the mount, everything is coming right for this well-related sort. Hurricane Cass ran a race of promise from out the weights last time at the Curragh and may prove the main danger.

Intensical - 21:05 Naas

While Aidan O'Brien has taken the last three renewals of this race the value appears to lie with the Jim Bolger-trained Intensical. Right back to his best in a three-runner event at Tipperary earlier this month, Intensical has some Group form from last year's Minstrel Stakes at the Curragh in the book.
