Horse Racing NAP Explained
Each day you will see horse racing NAPs posted by tipsters and this is their best bet of the day. This can be from any horse race, at any meeting.
The odds for the horse racing NAPs will vary from day to day but they tend to be quite short odds selections and a win bet however you will see some tipsters put up an each-way bet as their NAP and it’s always important to ensure you are betting each-way on these rather than just a win bet.
What is a NAP in Horse Racing?
The easiest way to put this is to say, if you are only betting on one horse today, it should be this one. Each tipster will probably pick a different NAP and the reasons for picking their selection will be different, but the answer to the question, what is a nap? remains the same. The Nap of the day will be the best bet a tipster could find and each day we will give you our very own horse racing NAP of the day, which you will find at the top of this page.
What is today’s NAP of the day on the horse racing?
Our best betting tip for today’s racing will be on this page at around 9am each day. This gives us time to pick the selection and give you time to bet on it. Depending on the day of the week will probably depend on how confident we are at winning our horse racing NAP. Some days, such as Saturday, there is a lot more horse racing to choose from, so we have a bigger pool of horses to pick our NAP from.
On the quieter racing days, there might not be as many horses for the NAP selection, so we would advise you to proceed with caution on these days.
We will also look to add any NAPs from racing pundits such as Templegate, Matt Chapman and Pricewise at the Racing Post.
How do I bet on today’s Racing NAP?
You would bet on the NAP just like you’d place any other horse racing bet. Simply navigate to your chosen bookmaker and go to the correct race meeting, and race time. From there, select the horse we have chosen as today’s NAP and add it to your bet slip. Then you can choose how much you want to stake on the NAP selection. We’d advise starting off your stakes small, maybe £5 or £10, and once you are used to the way NAPS’s work, you can up your stake if you wish. There will also be a full write-up of our horse NAP in our horse racing tips section of the site. Which will also provide you with lucky 15s, accumulators and through the card betting tips for big meetings.
Where do I find Newspaper Naps today?
The best place to find newspaper racing tips would be in the papers themselves, but if you haven’t got them to hand, we will try and put as many daily newspaper NAPs on here as we can. Sometimes when our tipster doesn’t have a strong fancy we will use NAPS from expert tipsters such as Newsboy or Templegate, who are always reliable sources for today’s horse racing tips and naps.
Then there are the famous Racing Post NAPs which are always very sought after especially for the big racing meets of the year such as Royal Ascot, the Cheltenham Festival, the Grand National and Glorious Goodwood. The horse racing NAPs for these meetings are always so popular that you often see the odds for these selections shorten throughout the day because so many people are betting on them!
Do you have a Football NAP as well?
We do. You can find our football bet of the day tips in their own special section. These bets are good to have as a single and you can build your betting balance with them. They will usually be published the day before the fixture kicks-off.
Offers for Betting on Today’s Racing Naps
When you are betting on horse racing NAPs, you should always try and use an offer than will give you the chance of a refund if your horse fails to win. Sometimes these betting offers give you your money back as a free bet but even that is better than a loss, so consider the promotions below when placing a bet. As with all betting offers, you should check the T&Cs carefully to ensure you will qualify.
For example, the William Hill money back in cash if you finish second offer only applies to your first bet on that particular race, and not every race meeting in the day qualifies. The beauty about this offer is that you get your refund in cash up to £10, meaning it is one of the best ‘money back if you lose’ racing offers out there. When you join William Hill you also get two free £15 bets after betting £10, so it is certainly an offer than we would recommend for betting on today’s NAP.
Money back as CASH if your horse finishes 2nd (selected races)
Money back credited as cash up to £10 per race. First bet qualifies, race winner market only, min odds 3/1. 4+ runners. Pl...
Selections must be odds of 3/1 or bigger to qualify.

Racing Post NAPs for Today
The Racing Post are one of the first places a lot of people look when they’re trying to find today’s racing tips. Their team of tipsters are very well respected and headed by Pricewise (Tom Segal) who is one of the best punters in the business.
Each day, the Racing Post NAPs tipsters will provide one NAP from each meeting in the UK and Ireland and as soon as we see them, we will post them on this page for you.
You can then decide how to bet on the NAPs or have a look at them yourself and see if you agree with the tipsters or not.
Just because a horse is the Racing Post NAP does not mean it is sure to win and you still have to risk your own money on the bet.
William Hill NAPs Table
The William Hill NAPs table is another go-to place for all racing punters because you will see a lot of today’s horse racing NAPs all in one place.
The William Hill Radio guys do a fantastic job in putting together NAPs from some very good punters who have gone from casual racing bettors to winning tipsters.

Racing NAPs for Lucky 15
One popular way of combining today’s horse racing NAPs would be into a lucky 15. For this type of bet you need four selections so you could choose four newspaper NAPs from different pundits, or maybe the Racing Post bet of the day from four of the meetings taking place in today’s race meetings.
Whatever you decide to do for your lucky 15, we’d recommend using the Betfred lucky 15 offer because if you only get one winner on your lucky 15, you will get paid out at treble the odds for that selection.
