Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Wednesday 24 July

Horses finish
There is flat racing from Naas on Wednesday evening

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Naas on Wednesday...

"She was value for more than the winning margin suggests last time when coming from the back of the field to win cosily."

Timeform on Shimmering Dawn

Sacchoandvanzetti - 18:55 Naas

Now dropped back into minor company, SACCHOANDVANZETTI can get involved in the finish. He has finished placed on his last two starts and as he stays further, this should be run at a good gallop giving him chance to pick up the pieces late. The rest of the field don't have much worthwhile form to their names he looks the most solid selection.

Shimmering Dawn - 19:25 Naas

Still unbeaten as a three-year-old, SHIMMERING DAWN steps into listed company for the first time in her career with the suggestion that she hasn't finished progressing just yet. She was value for more than the winning margin suggests last time when coming from the back of the field to win cosily. She looks deserving of this step up in class and with her trainer in excellent form, she can make the journey across the Irish Sea worthwhile.

Major Reward - 20:30 Naas

MAJOR REWARD didn't progress as his previous handler would have expected, but Ger Lyons seems to have got him back to form. He finished third on his first start for the yard at Limerick last time. A hold-up performer by nature, he wasn't seen to best effect last time but it was still a good enough effort to suggest he can take a hand here, with him the pick of stable jockey Colin Keane.
