The grey daughter of Dubawi spent much of 2017 in the shadow of Enable, her outstanding stablemate, but she is a smart performer in her own right.
Her best effort was when keeping on gamely to be a five-length runner-up to Enable in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks at York.
She looked a potential William Hill St Leger candidate that day and went on to finish fifth to Capri in the Doncaster Classic before finishing a fine third to Hydrangea in the Fillies & Mares contest on QIPCO Champions Day at Ascot.
Coronet had previously got up close home to land the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot and had clearly not been at her best when a well-beaten fifth behind Enable in the Investec Oaks.
Her 2018 campaign began with a fluent victory in the Group 2 Betfred Middleton Stakes at York, where she showed herself to be equally effective over a mile and a quarter. Next time she came close to a first Group 1 triumph – going down by a nose to Waldgeist in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.
Coronet has since gained two more Group 1 placings. She was a distant third behind Poet’s Word and Crystal Ocean in the QIPCO-sponsored King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot, and then beat all bar Sea Of Class in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks.
It can surely only be a matter of time before she wins at the highest level.
