Dubawi’s brilliant three-year-old son Coroebus landed his second G1 of the season with a thrilling triumph in the St James’s Palace Stakes. Held up midfield from his low draw, the slow early pace did not suit and he was keen under jockey William Buick. Rounding the bend he had to wait for the gap to appear, and when it did along the rails he made smooth headway before holding on late to record a head victory, with Iffraaj's son My Prospero a close third.
Coroebus has now won four of his five career starts including a brilliant victory at Newmarket in the 2,000 Guineas over stablemate Native Trail.
A Godolphin homebred, Coroebus is the second foal of Teofilo’s G3-winning daughter First Victory, who is a daughter of bluehen Eastern Joy and a half-sister to five Stakes winners including dual G1 Dubai World Cup hero Thunder Snow.
