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). And today, the four you’ll see below are the selections of some of the top-performing tipsters in the table for Friday night’s action. Let’s get to the bets…


18:30 Pontefract – Carnival Zain (Racing Post, RP Ratings)

CARNIVAL ZAIN has been in fine form since returning in March, following a narrow defeat on his Newcastle reappearance with wins at Catterick and Thirsk. Tactically versatile and much respected in his hat-trick bid from 4lb higher.

19:05 Stratford – Vaucelet (Daily Express, The Scout)

VAUCELET won the John Corbet Cup over C&D a year ago and has developed into one of Ireland’s top hunter chasers this season. Ran a big race in defeat in the Champion Hunters Chase at last month’s Punchestown festival and ought to be a very tough nut to crack here.

20:25 Haydock – Macho Pride (The Irish Field, Rory Delargy)

MACHO PRIDE had been struggling for form on the AW but he likes it here and returned to form with a close second of 15 over C&D last month. Could be bang there once more.

20:55 Haydock – Mambo Beat (Racing Post, Lambourn)

MAMBO BEAT was well beaten on his Newbury debut, but he showed more here and back at Newbury on next two starts. Opening mark not an obvious gift, but the new trip is a possible source of improvement. Gelded since last run.
