Advertise wins the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest

Frankie Dettori steered Advertise to a third top-level success in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville.

Winner of the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot last month, the Showcasing colt was last seen filling the runner-up spot behind Aidan O’Brien’s Ten Sovereigns in the July Cup at Newmarket three weeks ago.

With the all-conquering Italian on his back once more, Advertise was the 15-8 favourite to get back on the winning trail in France and travelled strongly for much of the six-and-a-half-furlong journey.

Martyn Meade’s stable star hit the front racing inside the final furlong and while the Kevin Ryan-trained Brando finished strongly in the middle of the track, Advertise clung on grimly to continue Dettori’s incredible run of Group One success.

Meade told PA: “I’m absolutely over the moon. We were quite confident coming here, but you can never be over-confident as so much can go wrong.

“It was a slightly different race to the July Cup. There was plenty of pace on, which was a big help, and he saw it out really well.

“He’s won three Group Ones now in Ireland, England and France, which is a great achievement.”
