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…

14:02 Fontwell – PILSDON PEN, (Sunday Telegraph, Whistler)

Lightly raced 5yo who made it fourth-time lucky over hurdles with a much improved win at Wincanton (1m7f, soft; 80-1) last month; up 6lb at this new trip but PILSDON PEN is a scopey type who kept on well to beat an in-form rival last time and is open to further progress; respected.

14:20 Sandown – LOVE ENVOI, (Daily Post, Mercury)

Irish bumper winner LOVE ENVOI has impressed in winning all three hurdles for her new connections, posting her best RPR yet (130) in disposing of a good field at Lingfield (2m, heavy; made most); has won over 2m5f so this longer trip won’t bother her at all; hard to fault.

16:50 Clonmel – LESSOFDNEGATIVITY, (Irish Daily Star, Brian Flanagan)

Three-time hurdle winner LESSOFDNEGATIVITY got off the mark over fences at Tramore in December; well-fancied when unseating before the race developed at Limerick; failed to confirm previous from with Arctic Ambition at Tramore last time; should go close for rider who recorded his first chase success in a high-pressure Leopardstown environment.

20:30 Chelmsford – ENFRANCHISE, (Daily Mirror, Newsboy)

Yet to finish out of the first four in her eight starts, winning three times (two on Polytrack, one over this trip); ENFRANCHISE still has some handicapping potential and open to more improvement than most of her rivals.
