Nailed on -

The selection which is considered to be a racing 'Certainty'.

Nap -

This is the selection that Racing Correspondents and Tipsters nominate as their major selection of the day or meeting. Considered to be 'Nailed on'.

Non-runner -

This is a selection that does not take part in a race or event for which it is entered.

Not under orders -

On the 'Off' of a race the flag is raised, and any runner withdrawn before the signal is deemed not to have come 'Under Starter's Orders'. Your stake on such a selection would be returned but any winning bets on the Race may be subject to a 'Rule 4' as there was insufficient time for a new market to be formed.
