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 picks…

15:35 Newmarket – Pogo (On The Nose, Expert Eye)

Yet to win anything stronger than a Group 3 but POGO did go close in this 12 months ago and has looked better than ever this term, including his latest second to the outstanding 7f yardstick Kinross; that shorter trip is probably ideal for him, though.

15:40 Worcester – Presentandcounting (Irish Herald, Ian Gaughran)

Yet another successful chaser who has found easy pickings in novice hurdles this summer, with PRESENTANDCOUNTING winning three of four; sent off at 1-10 and 1-50 in the latest pair and will find this a different kettle of fish but on quite a tempting mark for handicap hurdle debut.

15:50 Haydock – Mutaany (Western Morning News, Jeffrey Ross)

When second at Nottingham, MUTAANY was beaten by a subsequent Group 2 winner and the horse who beat him at Wolverhampton last time is now BHA-rated 93; unlikely to face anything of their calibre here.

16:25 Haydock – Pentland Hills (Racing Post, Lambourn)

2019 Triumph Hurdle winner PENTLAND HILLS was pipped on heavy ground here the following January; had wind surgery soon afterwards and has been seen only once since, when well beaten in the 2020 Champion Hurdle; had just fair Flat form earlier on but he’s a player on that, let alone his lofty hurdles form.
