You’ll often see tipsters, presenters and punters say that they have a NAP for the day, but do you know what a NAP is?
First of all I must point out that a Nap has nothing to do with a horse having forty winks.
The word itself is derived from the card game Napoleon.
Quite simply a NAP Bet is someone’s best bet of the day and the one you should follow if you want to bet on just one horse.
For example, the Free Racing Tips Premium Tip is our NAP bet and a Premium Tip is given out Monday to Saturday to members of the FRT VIP Club.
This NAP Bet is the horse we think has the best chance of winning on that day and the one we’re most confident on.
So, when you see NAP next to a horse, you know that in somebody's opinion it is going to be a good thing.
The aim of the chief FRT tipster Keith is to get a strike rate of at least 35% with his Premium Tip Nap Bets and he generally beats that level of success hands down – here are the latest results.
Of course, not all NAPs win and these are just people’s suggested best bets of the day, and if you look at the Newspaper Naps table which can be found on the Racing Post and Sporting Life websites some tipsters have a very poor record with their Naps so it is worth checking a tipsters record before backing their Nap's blind.
You may also see NB next to a tipsters selection this stands for “Next Best” which is basically their second strongest tip of the day.
