2023 Huxley Stakes Betting Odds at Chester racecourse

Friday, 12 May 2023

We could get a reasonable sized field for the 2023 Huxley Stakes, with Point Lonsdale a talented four-year-old having been impressive a month ago and a repeat performance could see the runner claim another victory. Aidan O’Brien is expected to secure a number of winners at the Chester May meeting and perhaps this could be one of them.

Foxes Tales was also a winner last time out, with the five-year-old trained by Andrew Balding and he is one of several horses trading at a similar price. Mujtaba, Poker Face and Visualisation are other runners who could be a warm order before the off, although it’s worth looking for extra places if you’re considering an each-way bet on the action.

Point Lonsdale heads the betting market although there’s a school of thought that the bookies want to keep this horse onside due to the fact that he’s trained by Aidan O’Brien. The horse won at The Curragh on 16 April, with the runner beating Visualisation into second place and obliging as the 6/4 favourite, with this taking place over one mile and two furlongs on heavy ground.

Previously to this, the horse looked out of his depth when finishing well down the order in a competitive race by the name of the 2000 Guineas. However, there was no disgrace in finishing tenth when you consider the quality of the field lining up, with this runner likely to be popular with punters despite its relative short price.

Foxes Tales is a five-year-old who was able to triumph on the all-weather surface at Kempton Park last time out, with the horse trained by Andrew Balding and there was a successful three-length win in the Magnolia Stakes, with the horse previously finishing third to Lord North at Lingfield in another competitive race.

Visualisation could be set to run well and there have been two recent victories either side of finishing second to Point Lonsdale, with Joseph O’Brien’s charge finishing less than two lengths behind the race favourite, while more recently we saw a win over one mile and two furlongs at The Curragh.
