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.
EMILY POST made the frame on first four starts and improved to score at Carlisle 18 days ago in her second handicap, with Alethiometer third and Caletta Sunrise fourth. Raised 4lb but scored in clear-cut fashion and looks one of the more likely candidates in this field.
Early in campaign was the best time to catch YOSHIMI in 2020 and 2021 when with Richard Fahey. First run since sold for £10,000 last September and he’s 7lb lower than when scoring at Musselburgh first time out last term.
CALLING THE WIND scored a career best when second off top weight in last season’s November Handicap. Hasn’t hit the same heights this time around but he ran well when third in the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot most recently and could be in the mix.
JIMMY BELL is a veteran who didn’t jump fluently when well-beaten fifth over fences at Huntingdon in May on first start for more than a year. Should be sharper for the run.
