We’re talking Matt Chapman, Frank Hickey, Jason Weaver, Timeform and Rory Delargy. You lucky, lucky things.

A high class week of Flat racing calls for the most finely-tuned minds in the game with the feature race on day one being the 2m Goodwood Cup at 15:35 where the unbeaten-this-season Kyprios, looks to back up his Royal Ascot Gold Cup success.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

In-between mingling with high society and holding court on your telly screens, our prestigious panel will bring you their best bets for the biggest races every day of the Festival in our outrageously handy Pundits’ Picks sheet.

Whether you need a NAP, an each-way play or a bit of self-empowerment, we’ve got all the races on ITV covered on the opening day where Mischief Magic is attracting plenty of attention based on his strong run at the course last time.

Matt Chapman

BRILLIANT LIGHT has strong each-way claims after big performances at York and Royal Ascot in his last two runs. This is probably his ideal trip and he has a great low draw to work from which is so crucial at Goodwood.

Frank Hickey

West End Charmer may have more to give now he’s back in handicaps. He was fifth in the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot and then unplaced when out of his depth at HQ last time. A big each-way chance.

Jason Weaver

Arqoob has only been given a gentle nudge up the ratings by the handicapper and can remain competitive at a double-digit each-way price in early trading.

Timeform

BELL ROCK may  bounce back to his best after a short break as he’s nicely treated even before his rider’s 5 lb allowance is taken into account. 

Rory Delargy

Legend of Dubai impressed when slamming a good field at Newmarket on his return, and then started favourite in the Royal Hunt Cup. He flopped there, but can be forgiven that, and I expect him to improve again upped to what should be his optimum trip.

Matt Chapman

MYSTERIOUS NIGHT ran against a good horse in Persian Force at Newmarket last time over six furlongs. He never really got into it, and the effort very much suggested this step up and trip could make all the difference.

Frank Hickey

Dornoch Castle is on a hat-trick and the form of his easy Ayr win has been franked. Will stay going out in front and looks sure to hit the places at least.

Jason Weaver

Mysterious Night was always struggling behind Persian Force last time and only started to make ground under hands and heels riding in the final 100 yards at Newmarket. There is a lot of upside about the Charlie Appleby runner.

Timeform

HOLLOWAY BOY became the first debutant to score at Royal Ascot since 1996 when readily landing the Chesham and Karl Burke’s exciting son of Ulysses sets a high standard here

Rory Delargy

Chesham winner Holloway Boy is just one of four colts to have won on debut at Royal Ascot since 1983, and the other three never won again! Dark Thirty (who was fifth in the Chesham) could be the each-way play after an improved run in the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket.

Matt Chapman

LUSAIL could be underestimated and while it won’t be easy against  Sacred, who is one of my favourites, Lusail has a lovely draw to work from and can hit the places at least.

Frank Hickey

It’s a long time since a three-year-old won the Lennox Stakes so I’ll stick with Sacred who made a pleasing reappearance at Royal Ascot and can build on that now.

Jason Weaver

I’m hopeful that Lusail won’t have to do the donkey work this time at the front. The cut-away rail will be used at its furthest point down the track for the start of the meeting, so he will definitely get room late on from his inside stall position in box two. Jockey Pat Dobbs can wait and pounce late.

Timeform

POGO arrives in the form of his life having defied a penalty in the Criterion at Newmarket and this prominent runner is likely to get a clear passage from stall four. He shades the vote over Sacred, who shaped very well in the Platinum Jubilee at Royal Ascot on her belated return. 

Rory Delargy

Sandrine has been kept to Group 1 company at a mile this year and will relish the drop to seven furlongs now in this lesser test.

Matt Chapman

COLTRANE has plenty to find on official ratings but is improving at a rate of knots. He did us a right favour at big odds at the Royal meeting and won again at Sandown.  Could be another huge win for jockey Rob Hornby.

Frank Hickey

The Ascot Gold Cup winner KYPRIOS had everything go against him but still managed to win at the Royal meeting. He’s improving and can score again. Trueshan needs plenty of rain to arrive while Stradivarius is not the force of old.

Jason Weaver

No Frankie Dettori on board but Stradivarius is going for a remarkable fifth victory in this contest. It has been well documented about his unlucky runs a couple of times and Andrea Atzeni can step into this pressure-cooker situation and handle it.

Timeform

TRUESHAN put up the sort of handicap performance that’s all too rarely attempted let alone accomplished when defying a BHA mark of 120 in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle 31 days ago. Kyprios success in the Ascot Gold Cup commands  respect, while Stradivarius can’t be written off despite not being quite the force of old.

Rory Delargy

The most interesting betting on the Goodwood Cup is at what time Trueshan becomes a non-runner! In his absence, Kyprios should confirm Gold Cup form with Stradivarius, despite the change of jockey on the latter.

Matt Chapman

EQUALITY ran huge at Epsom but disappointed a little at Royal Ascot as he was drawn on the opposite side of the track to where the winners came from.

Jason Weaver

The very speedy nature of this track is going to help Atalis Bay and he can continue his climb back up the sprinting ladder from a reduced mark of 98.

Timeform

It’s worth siding with NIGHT ON EARTH, who returned to form in this headgear combination when fifth to Celsius at Newmarket where he was beaten two lengths. He wasn’t seen to best effect that day and has a real chance of reversing the placings with the winner, who he meets on 7lb better terms.

Rory Delargy

Atalis Bay is 5lb lower in the weights than for his last handicap, when trying to concede 12lb to Mondammej, and failing by less than a length to do so.

:

Matt Chapman

It may be as well to side with MISCHIEF MAGIC in this big field. The Charlie Appleby trained runner has useful course experience at Goodwood after a promising debut at the track, and provided he makes just normal improvement he should be able to go two places better under the excellent William Buick.

Jason Weaver

Mischief Magic can only be a token selection in all honesty, but he did run well on his debut over this course and distance suggesting he has plenty of ability. The form has been boosted since with the winner and second that day running well again.

Timeform

A valuable big-field maiden with MISCHIEF MAGIC taken to make it second time lucky. He made a promising start here in May and that course experience won’t be lost on him. The form of that race has worked out and he seems sure to go close if improving as expected.

Rory Delargy

Celtic Champion needed the experience when third at Windsor, and is taken to improve enough to win this and holds an entry in the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes.
