Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Wednesday June 26

Joseph & Aidan O'Brien team up with Point Piper

Our Irish team go through Wednesday's card at Naas, picking out three best bets...

"Ballydoyle entrant Point Piper is from a hugely successful family and contested some warm maidens before winning one himself at Leopardstown..."

Our first selection comes in the 19:00, a seven-furlong handicap. Roscommon winner Flaring Forth is of obvious interest again, but the vote goes to Roja Dove, back at the scene of her sole success with a visor tried having had her stamina stretched in recent runs.

We'll skip over the Oaks Trial, which Moth should win, in favour of the handicap at 20:30. The return to 1m is in favour of Paynes Find, who has been going the right way to win three of his last four, and he can keep his good run going. Dansili Dual and Cork winner Target Acquired appeal as other major players.

Finally, we tackle a third handicap at 21:00. Ballydoyle entrant Point Piper is from a hugely successful family and contested some warm maidens before winning one himself at Leopardstown over a mile. He's bred to be much better than a mark of 86 and can get the better of the hat-trick seeking Fionnuar.
