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.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
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…
STORM OF LIGHT won a Uttoxeter maiden hurdle (2m4f, good) in November on his third start and kept on for third on subsequent handicap debut at Leicester (2m4f, soft), when shaping as though today’s longer trip would suit.
WIGGLESWORTH gained an unlikely success at Worcester on his chasing debut in September but has failed to complete the course on three of his four starts since, although at Doncaster last time that was through no fault of his own (going smoothly four out when a stirrup leather came undone). Has to be respected.
BOLD CONDUCT was a useful winner of an Irish point in 2018 but off for three years after. Had a respectable return at Exeter but pulled up next time, only to run well for a long way behind much higher rated rivals at Wincanton last month. This lesser test can suit now handicap/chasing and he has potential if all is well with him. Tongue tied this time.
ROXZOFF confirmed previous promise when gaining his breakthrough win in 7f Wolverhampton handicap 17 days ago, doing especially well to overcome a wide draw; big player nudged up just 1lb here.
