What is a Nap of the Day?

A Nap of the Day is a selection put up by a tipster as their most confident bet - the one horse they think has the best chance of winning.

How do you Choose a Nap of the Day?

When choosing their Nap of the Day, our expert tipsters consider several factors, which include:

  • Form: A horse’s recent form is a good indicator of its chances of winning. They look for horses that have been running consistently well.
  • Course Record: A horse’s record at the track where it is running is also essential - some horses perform better at certain tracks than others.
  • Ground Conditions: The ground conditions can affect a horse’s performance - some horses prefer soft ground, while others prefer firm ground.
  • Draw: The draw can also make a difference, especially in sprint races, so this factor comes into play regularly on the flat.
  • Trainer: A trainer’s record is another essential factor to consider - are their horses running well - do they have a strong record at the track?
  • Jockey: Finally, a jockey’s ability can significantly impact a horse’s performance, and some horses get on better with a particular jockey onboard.
