Chestnut gelding Fearless Treblav is another of those horses with seemingly a lot of promise but has taken time to get his act going in the right direction.

Now after five career starts, the Michael Marlowe trainee is slowly but surely coming into his own and just about realising his true capability.

Fearless Treblav came off a near seven-month layoff on last to finish in fifth position going six-and-a-half furlongs (1,300m). He was beaten by eight lengths by Sendamessagetomamaand company in 1:20.4. That run indicated that he was on an upward trend.

On Saturday last, Frealess Treblavturned that fifth-place finish in a winning effort in a maiden condition race going over eight-and-a-half furlongs (1,700m).

“He [ Fearless Treblav] should have won on last if he wasn't coming off a layoff that long but he is pretty much a nice horse. We wanted him to run in the recent Jamaica Derby, you know those long Classic races, as he has the potential and thing but he came up with a tendon problem and we had to work on him.

“We are bringing him on slowly, so we figured that we will now give him about three weeks and go in search of non-winners of two company.

“He is that type of horse that could be anything. If you remember his sister Golden Gloryreally got good when she turned four and so we are looking forward to him doing good things when he turns four-years-old next season,” Marlowe informed.

After the first furlong (200m), Fearless Treblav (Dane Dawkins) surged to the lead over Ashtrid (Aaron Chatrie) under a relaxed pace heading towards the six-furlong (1,200m) point.

Ashtrid assumed the lead heading towards the five-furlong (1,000m) marker but Fearless Treblav rallied to take over running the half-mile (800m) but was soon attacked by My Mom Juss (Dick Cardenas) at the top of the lane.

My Mom Juss accelerated and picked up the lead but Fearless Treblav refused to give in as a torrid battle for control developed in deep stretch. It was Fearless Treblav that got the upper hand and got up to win by a short head.

Fearless Treblav's stable companion Nala's Bushman (Prince Holder) finished in third place. The winning time was an encouraging 1:49.0.
