Timeform's SmartPlays team tackle the evening meeting from Naas on Wednesday.

"War Room was too free on his latest start over 12 furlongs, so the drop back to this trip should suit, and he has solid claims."

Captain Power - 18:00 Naas

Captain Power took his form up another notch when fourth in a Cork handicap last time and can come good at the sixth time of asking dropped back into a maiden. Dermot Weld's Mulkeyya didn't fire last time but will be a threat if back to the level of her first two starts, while Escapism represents top connections and has the potential for better after just two starts.

Ask Dad - 19:00 Naas

Ask Dad ran his best race for a while when runner-up to a well handicapped sort at Down Royal on Saturday, and he can go one better off the same mark in this competitive handicap. Captains Dilemma looks interesting returning from a short break with Pat Smullen booked, and he may prove the main danger, with Madame Nobel and Royal County Boy have each-way claims.

War Room - 20:00 Naas

War Room was too free on his latest start over 12 furlongs, so the drop back to this trip should suit, and he has solid claims. House Limit finally took advantage of his fine run of form when a narrow winner at Limerick last week, and he is respected under a penalty, while Settle For Red can reward each-way support.
