When Point Lonsdale won at the Curragh his trainer immediately announced that his next race would be the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot. He went there with great expectations and did not disappoint when winning as the money on favourite. His trainer stated that the National Stakes in Ireland or the Dewhurst at Newmarket in October will be his next objectives. The Dewhurst was won by St Mark’s Basilica in 2020 and is out of another Croom House filly named Cabaret. He has won both the French Guineas and the French Derby so Point Lonsdale has big hoofprints to fill. Aiden O’Brien also won the Chesham on Maybe – another Croom House graduate.
Point Lonsdale is the most exciting 2YO seen so far and has a quote of 8/1 favourite for next years Derby.
