Alpha Centauri joined an illustrious nomination by completing a fourth consecutive victory in Group 1 with an impressive success at the Prix Jacques le Marois in Deauville on Sunday.

The world-renowned colors of the owners of the Niarchos family had been brought to victory eight times in the prestigious French film.

They included characters like the flat royalty Miesque (1987, 1988) and Spinning World (1996, 1997) and the authoritarian defeat of Recoletos on the part of Alpha Centauri assured that now it has been elevated to those heights.

The filly trained by Jessica Harrington followed victories in the 1,000 Irish guineas, Coronation Stakes and Falmouth Stakes with the soft triumph of yesterday, encouraging her coach to label her as "a unique filly in her life".

She said: "She has given me some sleepless nights, I have to admit it, but it's not like training Moscow Flyer since there are no fences worth it for."

"It's a unique filly in life for me to train and it was a fantastic performance."

In Ireland, Frankie Dettori immediately nominated Newmarket's Dewhurst Stakes in October as a viable target for Advertise after directing the foal of Martyn Meade to a professional success at Group 1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes in Curragh.

The well-endorsed 11-10 favorite, the first British winner of the race since 1997, complemented last month's victory at the July stake at Newmarket by repelling So Perfect's persistent challenge to score by half a length.

"There was a bit of fear when the others came to challenge, but Advertise had a lot in the line," Dettori said.

"He has a great temperament and really wanted to do it, but I would say he has to go on a trip now and that in the long term the Dewhurst Stakes (seven stadiums) looks like a candidate for him."
