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…

Doncaster Jumps

13:00 Doncaster – Good Bye (Irish Herald)

The vote goes to GOOD BYE on the back of his eyecatching run at Fontwell, with confidence increased should the betting vibes be strong. The return to a sounder surface should help, while he’s well treated on the best of last season’s form (third off 10lb higher) so there are definite reasons to be hopeful. The consistent Bestiarius, who sports first-time headgear, is second choice. Seaborough will also play a part if recapturing the level he showed when runner-up over C&D in December.

13:52 Ffos Las – Drash On Ruby (The Racing Post)

This would be an easier assignment than a couple here have undertaken of late, notably DRASH ON RUBY, last seen failing to see it out at Exeter but taken to benefit from drops in both trip (3f) and especially class (from 0-125) here. Another down in distance, Gosuatri is preferred to Petty Cash as next best, whilst the suspicion remains there could still be a big run in the persevered-with Gino Wotimean off a tumbling mark.

15:10 Huntingdon – Wonderwall (Daily Post)

Elle Est Belle’s three wins have come against her own sex but she has performed well against males and commands respect on the figures. However, WONDERWALL is taken to reverse last season’s Champion Bumper placings with that mare and show further improvement. Harbour Lake and Jerrash are potentially smart, while C&D scorer Gentleman At Arms is another interesting contender in this engrossing Listed prize.

15:30 Thurles – Ash Tree Meadow (Sheffield Star)

The unexposed ASH TREE MEADOW is probably the one to beat. He has to concede weight to his rivals but he’s progressing with each run and he’s the potential improver in the line up. Il Courra and The Little Yank can fight it out for the minor honours with preference for the former who gets his optimum conditions.
