Trelinney continued the good form of the stable with an overdue first success in a Class 5 handicap over ten furlongs at Chepstow on Thursday in the colours of Marcus Tregoning.

An attractive filly from the family of Ivawood, she had shown plenty of promise in finishing fourth on all three of her starts this season, most notably when she led until well inside the final furlong at Goodwood last month.

There was confidence in the market behind Trelinney at Chepstow as she was backed down to 7-4 favourite shortly before the off.

She travelled well behind the leader Four Mile Bridge before easing into the lead a quarter of a mile from home, and quickly putting her seal on the race.

Although the winning margin over Bug Boy was a length Trelinney was well on top in the closing stages without being at all hard ridden and could possibly turn out again in another handicap at Bath on Wednesday.

Tregoning was clearly delighted by the style of his filly’s victory and has good reason to believe that she can continue to progress through the second half of the season.
