Timeform pick out three bets from Naas on Wednesday.


I Will Excel - 19:20 Naas

Melisandre, who has more improvement to come, and Bubbly Bellini are both respected, however I WILL EXCEL has shaped quite well all three outings for his current yard and is taken to exploit his handy mark. He threatened to come good soon when a creditable fourth at Limerick earlier this month and gets the nod here. It will be interesting to see if there's any confidence in the ring behind Jammy Guest on his stable debut.

Black Ruby - 19:50 Naas

A competitive race, but BLACK RUBY was a cosy winner of a Fairyhouse maiden four weeks ago, just needing to be kept up to her work. A half-sister to several winners, including thevery smart winner up to 1m Lord Shanakill and the smart two-year-old 1m winner Together Forever, she is open to further improvement and could well improve further now. Butterflies sets the standard on her Munster Oaks second and along with Petticoat and Elizabeth Browning, heads up the list of dangers.

Sharp Operator - 20:20 Naas

SHARP OPERATOR, who has had just four runs to date, is likely has more to offer on the back of his Gowran return and could be the answer to this big-field handicap. The Charles O'Brien-trained four-year-old fared best of those held up last time, still rough around the edges making his handicap debut, and shaped as if there was better to come. Recent winner Reinas Queen is in fine heart and can go well again along with Claregate Street who chased her home over C&D last week.
