Marcus Tregoning is ‘very excited’ about what the future might hold for impressive Glorious Goodwood maiden winner Alamode.

The two-year-old Sir Percy filly built upon a solid fourth on her debut at Newbury when claiming a competitive six-furlong clash on the Downs in July.

That victory – which saw her handed an official rating of 85 – has been boosted in recent weeks, with Winter Rose, Promising Run and Love On The Rocks, who followed her home at Goodwood, all winning.

Tregoning said: ‘I do hopefully plan to get some black type with her.

‘We have just given her a break and are just deciding where to go with her.

‘I did think about coming back for the Prestige Stakes at the weekend but I thought the ground would be too testing.

‘We think she is a nice filly and will take things as it comes as it is much easier that way.

‘We will just see what suits nearer the time.

‘She will have another run before the end of the season but we are in no rush.

‘We are very excited about her.’

Meanwhile, former Pompey striker Mick Channon saddled Harlequeen to glory on a seven-race card at Goodwood yesterday.

Channon, who trains at West Ilsley in Berkshire, sent the 11/2-shot out to win the EBF Stallions Maiden Fillies’ Stakes in the hands of jockey Silvestre De Sousa.

Andrew Balding’s Arabian Illusion justified his billing as 8/13-favourite with victory under Jimy Crowley in the Gentrack Velocity Maiden Stakes.

Dane O’Neill steered Dawaa to a 7/2 success in the Custom Fire & Security Nursery Fillies’ Stakes for trainer Mark Johnston.

Palawan and jockey Pat Dobbs got the better of two rivals to win the ebfstallions.com Peter Willett Conditions Stakes at 5/4 for handler Richard Hannon.

The Royal Sussex 
Regiment Stakes went to even-money favourite Gale Force, who was ridden to victory by Frederik Tylicki for James Fanshawe.

Pettochside, who went to post as the 7/2 market-leader, won the Clancy Docwra Charity Stakes for trainer Chris Gordon and jockey Cam Hardie.

And the final race – the Cappagh Stakes – was won by veteran Salient.

Michael Attwater’s 11-year-old was steered home by Callum Shepherd.
