Coronet made a successful reappearance with an dominant display in the Betfred Middleton Stakes at York.

John Gosden's filly won the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot last summer and ran several fine races in defeat, most notably chasing home esteemed stablemate Enable in the Yorkshire Oaks on the Knavesmire in August.

She went on to finish fifth in the St Leger and third on Champions Day at Ascot, and she was dropped in class and distant on her seasonal bow.

Frankie Dettori cut a confident figure in the saddle throughout the 10-furlong Group Two and committed for home over two furlongs out.

The 2/1 favourite idled in front, but was ultimately far too good for her rivals, passing the post a length and a half clear of Horseplay.

Dettori said: "She's the best ride. She's brilliant, she's honest and she's got an engine. It's just nice to be around her. When you get up on a morning and see your name down to ride her it's a privilege.

"Her work had been good coming into the race and she was very good today.

"I'm not sure what the plans will be for her next, we'll have to discuss it with John, but I'd imagine the plan would be to come back here for the Yorkshire Oaks later in the year as she clearly likes the place."
