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) today. 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…

15:05 Warwick – Nickle Back (Daily Record)

Several of these are good chasing candidates for the season ahead but, at the same time, are quite tricky to weigh up in terms of their prospects in this race. NICKLE BACK can be somewhat headstrong and is not without risk but he could have some of these on the back foot from an early stage if he blasts off in front and jumps well, so he might be worth chancing. Quid Pro Quo and Valentino Dancer (preferred in that order) are the least interesting ones for the longer term but both have chasing experience, proven fitness and will be suited by the forecast good ground.

15:45 Lingfield – Twilight Dancer (Daily Mail)

This looks trappy. Inverlochy and Hard Act To Follow should be capable of better, while Silver Screen and Labiqa (second choice) also have something to recommend them. TWILIGHT DANCER has been in good form over 7f this season and her pedigree offers hope that she’ll see out today’s extra furlong.

16:50 Thurles – Weather Alert (The Sun)

This looks open and it could pay to take a chance with last month’s Listowel fourth WEATHER ALERT who has a good 7lb claimer aboard. Charlie Luciano was in good form over hurdles before a Listowel failure and is potentially well handicapped on the Flat, a remark that may also apply to Sir Allen, a good juvenile hurdler last season who may have needed his Listowel run.

18:00 Chelmsford – Thomas Equinas (Racing Post)

Blue Flame, Hezahunk, Rhythmic Acclaim and Doves Of Peace all have something to recommend them but this may rest between course regulars Monaadhil and THOMAS EQUINAS. The selection failed to fire at Southwell last time but he had proven too strong for Monaadhil twice here in August and the return to Chelmsford can see him resume his progress.
