William Haggas' Sholaan (10-1) won the Bond Tyres Trophy Handicap at York on Saturday.
The son of Invincible Spirit was revitalised by first-time blinkers and the drop in trip to six furlongs and he was five lengths clear of the rest at the line.
Liam Jones always had him in a handy position on the far side and he kicked three lengths clear two furlongs out in what proved to be a race-winning manoeuvre.
Gabriel's Lad (10-1) ran on for second with Glen Moss (8-1) third and Boris Grigoriev (40-1) fourth.
The likes of Priceless Jewel, Top Cop and Tioman Legend never figured.
Jones said: "He's a lovely horse, I won on him at Wolverhampton but he didn't handle the track at Epsom when Ryan Moore rode him.
"Today we weren't sure about the ground but he's by Invincible Spirit and they usually handle it.
"The blinkers were just to keep him straight more than anything as he ran around a bit at Wolverhampton.
"I think he could be a better horse (than handicaps) and can go on to better things, he might be a Group horse."
