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…

13:20 Southwell – Altraif (Daily Telegraph, Marlborough)

ALTRAIF was largely consistent over 7f last year, most recently fourth at Kempton in first-time blinkers (retained). Holds every chance if he shows any improvement for subsequent gelding operation and this extra furlong.

15:05 Gowran Park – Eklat De Rire (Morning Star, Farringdon)

EKLAT DE RIRE has a good chance on the balance of form having won all three completed starts over fences, including defeat of Escaria Ten in Grade 3 event over 3m1f at Naas.

16:00 Southwell – Percy Willis (The Guardian)

PERCY WILLIS got off the mark at the 14th attempt at Newcastle and then defied a penalty by a length margin here last week. He’s a further 3lb higher today under another penalty but looks sure to be involved.

16:17 Wetherby – Your Place (Steve Mullington)

YOUR PLACE had fair efforts in 2m4f handicaps (soft/good to soft) the last twice and, based on the stamina in her pedigree, this unexposed 6yo could relish today’s step up in distance.
