Nap of the Day

The nap of the day is the highest rated selection for a sporting event from a tipster who provides tips. There are paid tipping services for football and other sports, but the concept is most popular with horse racing. A tipster is followed based on reputation and proofed results. The tipster must provide profitable tips that cover the bookmaker betting margins and the subscription cost of the tips. The perception is that a tipster has inside information not in the public domain. This information should be best used in identifying the best bet in a racing programme and that is the nap of the day. The second highest rated selection is the next best and by definition this is not as highly regarded as the nap of the day. A racing tipster is only expected to  deliver one nap of the day and one next best selection.

Nap of the Day Races

There is a varied racing programme in the UK which features many different types of track. There is jumps and Flat racing and meetings on the All-Weather. Some tipsters focus on one type of race when highlighting their nap of the day. The increase in the number of All-Weather tracks and summer jumps racing has made for more meetings all around the year. Providing a tip for each race is an onerous task so some tipsters eliminate some types of race when finding the nap of the day and next best. There are naps tables for the jumps and Flat seasons. Tipsters from national newspapers and regional publications put forwards a nap of the day. The tables show the number of winners and level stakes profit or loss. The table is displayed in order of performance so the tipster whose nap of the day has delivered the biggest profit appears at the top of the table.

Nap of the Day and Grand National

The biggest betting race of the season is the Grand National at Aintree in April and tipsters make selections the nap of the day. In this instance the nap of the day is the most highly rated horse, but the general public are looking for clues for the race and some will follow the nap of the day of a respected tipster. The National is a 40-runner handicap so the favourite is always a relatively bog price. If the nap of the day wins the race the tipster will move up the naps table. On a regular day the nap of the day will often be a short-priced favourite so the odds of the winner of the Grand National will improve the standing of the tipsters who made it the nap of the day. A tipster’s reputation can be enhanced by tipping the winner of the race.
