All eyes were on Tahiyra ahead of the 2023 Coronation Stakes, as Dermot Weld's star carried a short price into Friday's feature at Royal Ascot.

Following a runner-up finish in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, Tahiyra beat Meditate in the Irish equivalent of that Classic last time out. Meditate lined up for a third crack at the favourite, along with fellow Irish raider Sounds Of Heaven.

John and Thady Gosden's Queen For You was the highest-placed British entrant in the betting. Mammas Girl and Remarquee, who both disappointed in the 1000 Guineas, also featured in the field.

Tahiyra was the last to enter the stalls and Chris Hayes had to bide his time at the rear after the favourite stumbled out of the stalls. Ryan Moore took Meditate to the front, and the second-favourite set fairly steady fractions in the early stages.

Turning for home, Moore was the first to commit on the front end. Mammas Girl and Queen For You cried enough fairly quickly, as Tahiyra began to make stealthy progress around the outside of the field.

Ralph Beckett's Remarquee was still in there pitching and was just starting to work her way into contention when  Hayes slammed the door in Rob Hornby's face. Tahiyra then swept into the lead and maintained the advantage all the way to the line.

Remarquee fought back brilliantly to finish a strong second ahead of Sounds Of Heaven and Meditate. The stewards called an inquiry, but they judged the interference caused by Tahiyra to be minimal and the placings remains unaltered.
