Darley stallions completed a quick fire Stakes double on Saturday, 7 May through Rogue Millennium and Aldaary.
First to salute the judge was Dubawi’s three-year-old daughter Rogue Millennium in the Listed Oaks Trial Stakes at Lingfield Park. The lightly raced filly came into the race unbeaten after a debut win at Wetherby, and after being held up early, she swooped late to record a head triumph over Mystic Wells, with Golden Horn’s daughter Makinmedoit gaining valuable Black Type in third.
Expertly handled by trainer Tom Clover, the Shadwell Stud-bred filly will now likely be supplemented for the G1 Epsom Oaks at the start of June.
Twenty minutes later Aldaary gained a well deserved first Stakes victory when easily landing the Listed Spring Trophy. The first-crop son of Territories was held up in the rear before making smooth progress down the outside, eventually running out the three-and-a-half length winner.

Aldaary was very progressive last season, winning two big field handicaps at Ascot off official ratings of 103 and 109.
Bred by M E Broughton, Aldaary is out of the winning Pivotal mare Broughtons Revival, who also has a two-year-old colt by Territories in training with Kevin Philippart De Foy.
