Each and every day of the racing year we bring you a bumper NAPs table to give you the inside scoop on all the plays you’ll need that day.

Don’t know what a NAPs table is? We’ll tell you! It’s an independently run competition involving the cream of the British and Irish racing press whose positions in the table are based on their profits to Level Stakes. And just like all sports competitions worldwide, those doing best are towards the top of the table.

So, we decided to put that golden guide to the test and use it to steer you towards what could be a savvy Lucky 15 (4 horses, 15 bets). The four you’ll see below are the selections of some of the top-performing tipsters in the table. Let’s get to the bets…


Newcastle racecourse May20a

12:05 Chepstow – Ruby Yeats (Daily Telegraph, Marlborough)

RUBY YEATS was well treated on her Exeter win in the mud last January but she’s been well below form in last three starts, most recently when a well-held third of six at Plumpton two weeks ago. The drops back in trip and grade should see a return to form.

14:15 Chepstow – Mahon Point (Morning Star, Farringdon)

MAHON POINT kept on for fifth in 2m3f bumper on sole Irish start, then won a British point last May. Also a respectable third in 2m bumper here on debut for Fergal O’Brien, staying on from a difficult position. A major player back up in trip.

15:10 Newcastle – The Mackem Torpedo (Andy Morris)

THE MACKEM TORPEDO was not far behind Harvest Day over C&D last month but failed to fire at Wolverhampton last week, but was not helped by being caught out wide. A very appealing each-way price.

15:50 Chepstow – Gemirande (Steve Mullington)

GEMIRANDE won on chasing debut in France in early 2020 but had a very mixed record over hurdles in first five runs for current yard last season, However, he returned to chasing with a good second at Southwell last month. Now only 1lb higher here and he’s open to more progress in this sphere. Will be a big player.
