Dynamic trim of field at both start and end

Hi, i have a field that i need to trim.
The field can have a number of different strings, for which i want to trim everything except 1 word.

The fields can look like this:

Deployment of ABC with version 3.0.348 to Acceptance
Deployment of Application XYZ with version : 1.8.540 to Production

I'm only interested in the ABC and XYZ part of these strings.

The part that says "Deployment of " or "Deployment of Application " at the start should be removed.
The part that says " with version ........" all the way to the end should be removed.

What would be the best way of doing this? I've been messing about with regex, trim, replace, without success.

Edit: The following regex appears to work when i try it in any regex editor online, but i cannot get this to work in splunk:

.*(?:Application)? ? (.*) with.*
