John Gosden has lined up Coronet for Champions Day at Ascot in October after her win 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."
