2022 Dewhurst Stakes Betting Odds at Newmarket racecourse

Saturday, 08 October 2022

Naval Power has achieved a string of wins this season and the two-year-old heads the betting for the 2022 Dewhurst Stakes, with the horse set to be popular when he turns out in the Godolphin colours. Charlie Appleby has recently won this race with Pinatubo and Native Trail and it could be another trip to the winners’ enclosure.

Aidan O’Brien has also landed a recent winner in this Group 1 race, with Blackbeard’s odds having tumbled for this heat. The trainer has previously landed a consecutive hat-trick of wins in the form of Air Force Blue, Churchill and U S Navy Flag. Chaldean and Nostrum are also among the favourites.

2022 Dewhurst Stakes Tips

Naval Power has racked up a series of wins during the 2022 Flat season, with a win coming at Yarmouth in May. Then came a victory at Leicester before scooping the honours at odds-on when landing a win in a Listed race in July. Another triumph came at Haydock and it’s hard to pick holes although the horse will be up against stiffer competition for this one.

Blackbeard has also been a serial winner this year and the two-year-old is going for a fourth consecutive triumph, with Aidan O’Brien knowing what it takes to win a Dewhurst Stakes. The six furlong victory in the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes saw Ryan Moore edge the horse clear to win by two lengths on that occasion.

There have also been triumphs in Deauville and Chantilly, with Chaldean also catching the eye after three straight wins. The victory in the Coral Champagne Stakes saw Frankie Dettori give the horse a decent spin. That followed the Tattersalls Acomb Stakes where Chaldean was able to win this Group 3 encounter.

Stablemate Nostrum has secured back-to-back wins including a recent success at Newmarket, with O’Brien also having a couple of second string horses who can run into a place. Aesop’s Fables and Auguste Rodin are both a backable each-way price and it will be interesting to see how the market pans out.

Point Lonsdale Could Be Horse to Beat in 2021 Dewhurst Stakes

Point Lonsdale is the early betting favourite to win the Dewhurst Stakes, with this horse trained by the legendary Aidan O’Brien and the two-year-old has already been impressing racing fans with a succession of wins along the way. Things started with a maiden victory at The Curragh, while that was convincing enough for the runner to be sent off as odds-on favourite in the Chesham Stakes at Ascot which was also won.

The horse was incredibly strong favourite to win the Japan Racing Association Tyros Stakes before his latest victory came at The Curragh in another facile race, although it’s clear that Point Lonsdale could set the benchmark when it comes to this encounter.

John Gosden Set to Have a Lively Contender in This Race

Reach For The Moon is the leading light of the John Gosden stable, with the horse having secured two runner-up and two winner positions during his two-year-old career to date. The victories have come in the previous two renewals and the horse was the 2/5 winner of the Betway Solario Stakes at Sandown Park which saw Frankie Dettori enjoy a comfortable ride over seven furlongs.

Lusail is another multiple winner and the Richard Hannon-trained horse has won four of his past five challenges, with that victory in the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Gimcrack Stakes intimating that the two-year-old could possibly be the favourite to score a success considering the calibre of the runners who were involved.
