A 35,000 guineas purchase in the Shadwell dispersal sale, Rogue Millennium, a daughter of Dubawi, has a first strike for new connections at Wetherby last month.
She was stepped-up a fair bit here, but after travelling well in the rear of the field, she picked up well, despite showing signs of inexperience to overhaul long-time leader Mystic Wells in the dying strides.
Winning trainer Tom Clover said: "I'm absolutely made up. It was a great shout from the team to buy her at the sales. Marcus Tregoning highly recommended her to us and he rang this morning to wish us the best of luck.
"She came from a long way back and stayed on really well. It's lovely to have a daughter of Dubawi, she's a gorgeous filly and I'm thrilled for her owners who are huge supporters of mine and it's great to see syndicates having big winners."
Winning jockey Jack Mitchell added: "She was a very smart purchase from Shadwell and is a lovely filly. She was more professional first time out than she was there and maybe the track caught her out a little bit. But I came to win hands and heels and she was running all over the place and a bit green.
"She'll take a big step forward again and I'd love to ride her at Epsom. The experience of the track here will stand her in good stead if she goes there."
Rogue Millennium will need supplementing if she's to run in the Cazoo Oaks but connections indicated that could be the plan.
