Winter led home an Aidan O'Brien-trained one-two-three with victory in Friday's Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Formerly trained by the now-retired David Wachman, the grey daughter of Galileo has taken her form to new levels since switching to O'Brien's all-conquering yard and has developed into the dominant force in the three-year-old fillies division over a mile.
She was sent off the odds-on favourite after easy wins the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Irish version at the Curragh, and she proved different class with a two and a quarter lengths success.
The icing on the cake for O'Brien, who was completing a Group One double on the day following Caravaggio's Commonwealth Cup victory earlier in the day, was that Winter's stable companions Roly Poly and Hydrangea followed her home in second and third.
Ryan Moore said: "She was only doing what she had to do. She travelled beautifully through the race and was very professional, but she was just doing what she had to I think.
"It's a hard thing to do to win two Guineas and then come here, but she's with a trainer who can do magic things. It's very hard to do what she's done, but she's good. She's beaten some good fillies from France and America and this is a strong piece of form."
Aidan O'Brien said: "She's a filly who is thriving from race-to-race, she travelled well, Ryan had her in a lovely position and she's won very well.
"She gets the trip very well, she's very classy and is a great traveller. When you ask her she gallops out strong. Physically she's thriving, David (Wachman, former trainer) always thought the world of her last year and now she's thriving race-to-race.
"All roads lead to Del Mar (Breeders' Cup), but first there's a race in three weeks' time, the Falmouth, so we'll see how she is and how her training keeps going.
"She's had four races quick enough, but she's doing well and enjoying it. She'll get further later on so we might look at races like the Nassau.
"I thought her best furlong was the last. She galloped out."
John Gosden said of Dabyah, who travelled well but faded into fourth: "She ran a beautiful race, she was last off the bridle and I just wanted the furlong pole to be the finish line.
"We rode her to get the mile and she's a lovely filly, but she just doesn't quite stay so it's a case of coming back to seven furlongs now."
