Lonsdale On Point In The Huxley

Coolmore and Westerberg’s 575,000gns Tattersalls October Book 1 yearling and ‘TDN Rising StarPoint Lonsdale (Ire) (Australia {GB}–Sweepstake {Ire}, by Acclamation {GB}) made a winning seasonal return in last month’s G3 Alleged S. at the Curragh, having been on the shelf for almost a year after running seventh in last term’s G1 2000 Guineas, and added to his tallies in 2021’s G3 Tyros S. and G2 Futurity S. with a battling effort in Friday’s G2 IRE-Incentive It Pays To Buy Irish Huxley S at Chester.

Positioned in second passing the judge first time, the well-backed 5-6 favourite came under increased pressure from halfway and stayed on in resolute fashion once gaining an edge into the straight to hold the late rattle of Mujtaba (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) by a neck, providing Ryan Moore with a record eighth renewal of the extended 10-furlong contest.
