The whole concept of a NAP comes from picking our best bet over all of the day’s racing, so it’s bound to be a favourite out of one of the day’s many runs. That’s not to say we go for a random favourite though, as the current form and a variety of typical factors come into play when choosing the ideal NAP for each specific day. Depending on what sort of race it is, our NAPs tend to be chosen based on weight, form, win ratio and any other attribute which makes the horse desirable to winning their selected race to a level of reliability that we can trust enough to tip on site. Odds for a NAP are usually small prices, sometimes even going under odds of 1/2, but they can also go as high as around 1/1, which is made all the more tempting for those new to backing NAPs.
