Frankie Dettori's Group One-laden summer continued when he steered Coronet to victory in the Darley Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville.

The Italian tracked the early pace which was set by Wild Illusion before asking his partner to go on over a furlong out.

Despite drifting left the 6/4 favourite did just that and was always holding With You (4/1) in second.

Red Tea (33/1) ran a huge race in third for the Joseph O'Brien team.

John Gosden was winning the race for a second time and told Sky Sports Racing: "She's done it well. It's the sharpest trip for her and she's probably better at a mile-and-a-half and she has that weird way of running with her head at an angle but that's her.

"I think she was coming out looking for the better ground down the middle. She's been a lovely filly to train and hopefully we'll have one more run maybe in the Fillies' and Mares' at Ascot on QIPCO Champions Day."

She is 6s from 10s with Sky Bet for the October showpiece.
