4:35pm Ayr Tennent's British Stallion Studs EBF Rothesay Stakes (Listed Race) 1m2f

Titi Makfi’s chances of winning at Chester were all-but ended when she was handed a draw out in the car park. Mark Johnston’s charge will appreciate a return to Listed company, but will have to concede a three-pound penalty to several dangerous rivals.

Both Company Asset and Jet Streaming good experience at this level, but there are doubts as to whether they will enjoy the firm ground. One who should relish the conditions is Andrew Balding’s WINGINGIT and it’s the Helmet filly who get’s the nod.

During her days in Noel Meade’s stable, Wingingit followed a maiden victory with a superb triumph over a-mile-and-a-half at Leopardstown, carrying top-weight to victory in a handicap on firm, fast ground. A runner-up finish in a Listed race behind Aidan O’Brien’s Wild Irish Rose followed, before she made the move to England and linked up with Andrew Balding.

Wingingit’s outings have been a little disappointing since the switch, with two sixth place finishes the best results she’s managed in three starts. Last time out, Rob Hornby looked to have produced his mount perfectly with two furlongs to travel in the Daisy Warwick, but Wingingit couldn’t find the finishing pace required on the juicy Goodwood turf.

This will be the first time she has run on her favoured ground since that victory at Leopardstown. A wide draw may not be ideal, but over a-mile-and-a-quarter, Wingingit has plenty of time to find a good position and she could provide Balding with a welcome tonic for his stable’s poor run of form.

What does NAP mean?

he world of horse racing can be a confusing place for punters, full of confusing jargon and unfamiliar terminology. The phrase NAP is one you will come across a lot when reading tips in newspapers and other horse racing publications. Yet, some people will still be unaware what the term NAP actually mean.

As with most things involving gambling, the origins of the phrase NAP come from France. More specifically, a French card game called Napolean. In Napolean, the best hand in the game is called a Napolean, but wanting to save time, players simply refer to is as Nap.

The term NAP holds a similar meaning in horse racing as it did in the card game it was derived from. Any tipster on any given day will assigned the tag of NAP, or NAP of the day to the horse he feels has the best chance of winning or the horse he thinks offers punters with the best value for money.

So, if you see those three words appear next to the name of a horse, you should take notice, as tipsters are always deadly serious about their NAPs!

NAPS as part of a multiple bet

NAP may now be part of you horse racing vocabulary, but there are couple of other acronyms that might still be confusing you. While NAP will crop up on practically every horse racing tipping page, the letters NB and T won’t be far behind. 

Where a NAP is a tipster’s best bet of the day, the term NB stands for Next Best, meaning that selection is second only to a pundit’s NAP. T represents the word Treble and is the third leg of that tipster’s three-fold accumulator containing a their NAP and their next best bet.

A treble is a popular type of bet in all forms of sports betting and is an extremely common form of wager in horse racing. A treble is an accumulator consisting of three selections and the bet can be placed straight win or each-way. All three legs of the accumulator have to win – or place if you have backed the bet each-way – for you to receive any pay-out, but the return you will pocket would be much more significant than if you had backed the three horses individually.

Given an expert’s NAP, and even their NBs, are likely to carry short prices to post, it makes sense to team them up with an third horse – usually labelled T - to help punters maximise their profits by backing the trio as a treble.
