Champions Day plan for Coronet

19th August 2019, 08:29 by Craig Smithson

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."
