Mark Johnston has big-race plans for two of his smartest performers, Gr.2 winner Threading for the Gr.1 Coronation Stakes and Mildenberger who is likely to run in the Gr.2 King Edward VII Stakes on the same day.
Johnston said: "The Coronation is probably shaping up to be the race of the meeting now the English, Irish and French 1000 Guineas winners could all be going there.
"It's going to be a very tough race, but we saw in the Lowther last year she is a very high-class filly.
"It is hard to say what level her performance was at York last time, but the manner in which she beat them was of a top-class filly, so I think Ascot is the place to go."
