NAP Tips and Predictions

All of the best betting websites provide their own NAP of the Day, and there’s a lot of reasons why they choose to do this. The only issue is that coming to terms regarding exactly what one is can be a bit of a challenge for less experienced punters. NAPs are one of the primary bets when it comes to betting on horse racing, so working out what they are and how best to utilise them is likely to benefit you in the long run.

What is a NAP of the Day?

The whole point of a NAP is to present what you see as being the strongest horse tip from the day’s racing action. It’s become a cornerstone in horse racing betting, as it’s a way of identifying the most reliable bet for the current day out of the hundreds of horses you could potentially choose from. The term NAP originates from a French card game where the strongest hand is called a Napoleon, which was then shorted to NAP, and used in horse racing with the same intention.

Although it plays a big part in betting on horse racing, you might not find NAPs on bookmaker websites. This is due to them providing the odds on horse racing, leaving each day’s chosen NAP to be decided by the many horse racing punters and betting websites. One of the best references for a NAP that has been researched and hand-picked is on The Winners Enclosure’s website, where they run a page dedicated to quality Nap Of The Day tips.

Where will I find a good NAP?

If you’ve already referred to The Winners Enclosure’s own Nap Of The Day page for inspiration, you might be tempted to track down your own NAP. This can be done by scouting around all of the bookmaker websites or apps and seeing which of the favourites you like the look of.

NAP odds will usually be around evens, or sometimes lower, with the main focus being to win the bet rather than to take any major profit. This always needs to be kept in mind when you’re choosing a NAP or staking money on one, as high odds NAPs aren’t likely to be suitable for that market. It’s meant to be the most likely horse to win throughout the chosen day, so going for massive odds or outsiders will end up being more of a longshot than a NAP of the Day.

Uncouth Act at Remembrance Day Inspires Award-Winning Poem


London Poet Alan Wright has won ‘Poem of the year 2018’ – an impromptu poem recital, inspired by the actions of an uncouth man in the crowd at London’s Remembrance Day.

Wright 52, told Glossy News:

“I was asked to recite a poem at Remembrance Day in London, to honour the sacrifices British soldiers have made in past wars. Her Majesty the Queen and leaders of the main political parties laid down wreaths at the base of the cenotaph, and a two minute’s silence was impeccably observed.

Glossy News Has Published Our First Book! Never Have I Ever: the Game in Book Form

You know those $30 board games you play that are really wicked and really fun? Yeah, we made our own version, and it’s in book form; and it’s available for $5.99 on the first edition. The second edition promises to cost more; but this one is really fun, superbly clever, and wicked as all-get-out.

It’s the culmination of over a year’s work and we’re really proud of it.

The book is available here on Amazon.

There are rules of course, and play pieces you can cut out from the back page. But all that’s purely secondary to the replayability of it all.

With an average of 30-questions to finish the game, and over 800 questions in the book, the replay value promises to be around 28-plays.

Compare that with Cards Against Humanity which costs $26, and has a replay value of about two times. This game is around 21-cents a play, versus $13. I mean, you’re coming out ahead right out of the gate, but don’t take it from me! Read more Glossy News Has Published Our First Book! Never Have I Ever: the Game in Book Form

Saul nodded gently. Read more Chapter 27: Snowflake Stormtroopers (Honest Adolph Volume III)

Chapter 26: Just-So Stories (Honest Adolph, Volume III)

Presidential nominations, generally speaking, go to those with the biggest mouth, and not the greatest intellect or grandest patriotism.
