The brilliant filly Alpha Centauri won her fourth straight Group One race with a comfortable victory in the Prix Jacques Le Marois at Deauville.

Ridden by Colm O'Donoghue for trainer Jessica Harrington, the three-year-old was taking on colts for the first time.

But there were no concerns for the 10-11 favourite as she powered clear of runner-up Recoletos.

The French victory follows wins in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, Coronation Stakes and Falmouth Stakes.
