2024 Ormonde Stakes Betting Odds at Chester racecourse

Thursday, 09 May 2024

There’s little to separate Arrest and Point Lonsdale in the betting for the Ormonde Stakes, with the former having finished seventh out of ten runners at Newbury last time out. However, there were some smart performances at Doncaster and Newbury last year which suggests that the horse could go well this time around.

Point Lonsdale is a five-year-old who has produced some fine displays and the Aidan O’Brien-trained horse has proven his class before, while Deauville Legend can’t be discounted and the James Ferguson-trained horse has a similar rating to the two favourites who are lining up for this one mile, five and a half furlong encounter.

2024 Ormonde Stakes Tips

Arrest was last seen finishing seventh out of ten runners at Newbury, with the horse having been sent off at 11/4 in the Surprise Stakes at the end of April, with the runner having experienced a stuttering start in that encounter. Previously to this came a runner-up performance in the St Leger Stakes over one mile, six and a half furlongs.

Previously to this, we saw the same horse finish first in the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury, with Point Lonsdale another runner who has to be considered. The charge was last seen finishing sixth out of twelve horses at Meydan, with this coming after a disappointing outing at Doha.

There had previously been bright showings at Bahrain and Ascot, with the former race being the Bahrain International Trophy where Spirit Dancer and Israr finished ahead of the horse. In the Qipco Champion Stakes, the horse was sent off at odds of 18/1 before finishing a credible fourth place and there could be more to come.

Deauville Legend comes next in the betting and the horse returns for a seasonal debut, with the five-year-old trained by James Ferguson. There was a fourth-placed finish out of six horses in a race at Windsor back in August, with this coming after a disappointing ninth place from ten runners.
