Champions Day plan for Coronet
John Gosden is planning an outing at Ascot on Champions Day for Coronet after her victory in the Darley Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville.
The Newmarket-based handler decided to take the five-year-old to France at the weekend as opposed to pitching her in against stablemate Enable at this week's Yorkshire Oaks at York.
And, after watching Coronet secure a first Group One win in her previous outing in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud in late June, Gosden was delighted after Frankie Dettori guided her over the line comfortably clear of Freddy Head's With You.
Afterwards, Gosden told Sky Sports Racing: "She's done it well. It's a sharp trip for her - she has that weird way of running with her head on an angle, but it doesn't stop her.
"She's been a great filly to train. Hopefully she'll have one more run now in the Filly & Mares at Ascot on Champions Day.
"Breeding is a tough game, but Prince Faisal (owner of Denford Stud) has been doing it for some years. The owner/breeders are passionate about it, and it's lovely to have a good one for them."
