The Flat season is now well underway, we’ve already seen some quality action around the UK & Ireland, with Baeed already living up to his tag as the best horse in the world right now.

But there’s plenty more action to look forward to with the Epsom Derby and Epsom Oaks up next week  and Royal Ascot hot on its heels shortly after. 

Top TV presenter and racing expert Matt Chapman will e trackside for both and he’s given us his 10 fine fancies for the Summer ahead. 

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Coroebus (Charlie Appleby)

Outstanding winner of the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket with the promise of more to come and could be stepped up to to 1m 2f later in the season. Should take all the beating in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Trueshan (Alan King)

This may be a slightly ‘iffy’ selection as he needs the ground to be good or slower to show his best.  That said, in those conditions he’s going to be very hard to beat in top staying events and has the Ascot Gold Cup as his big, mid-season target.

Modern Games (Charlie Appleby)

This Breeders’ Cup hero bagged in the French 2,000 Guineas on his last run. He’s expected to run next in the French Derby and is very much more talented than I think people believe.

Mishriff (John Gosden)

He disappointed when last seen in Riyadh in the Saudi Cup. However, when there isn’t a superstar in the line-up, he’s very capable of picking up a Group 1 over 1m 2f or possibly 1m 4f.

One Ruler (Charlie Appleby)

Was a shade unlucky when last seen in handicap company over 7f in the Victoria Cup at Ascot earlier this month. He was all dressed up with nowhere to go and flew in the last furlong when the gaps appeared to finish sixth. There could be some nice prizes in him over shorter trips this season and One Ruler is among the market leaders for the Royal Hunt Cup on the Wednesday of Royal Ascot in June.

Inspiral (John Gosden)

The champion juvenile filly missed the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket but expected to return in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. Juvenile form has worked out well and she could still be a star.

Royal-Ascot-2019

Native Trail (Charlie Appleby)

Runner-up in the 2000 Guineas and gained compensation in the Irish equivalent. Should still progress over 1m and if connections do decide to step up to 1m 2f with him, and there are a lot of races to mix it up in over that trip.

Hurricane Lane (Charlie Appleby)

The former St Leger winner who might be an Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe hope once again this season and has every chance of bagging Group 1s along the way.

BaaeedJul21

Alfred Munnings (Aidan O’Brien)

This two-year-old looked exceptional on his sole start when winning at Leopardstown and will head to the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot with a huge reputation intact and be a lively favourite to deliver.

Baaeed (W Haggas)

And finally, any 10 to Follow isn’t complete without the William Haggas-trained Baaeed. Currently one of the world’s best horses after his return romp at Newbury and will prove hard to beat in any Group 1 contest over 1m and 1m2f. An oods-on favourite for the Queen Anne Stakes over the mile with the promise of a step up to 1m 2f at York later in the season.
