GROUP 1 action in England last week saw the Irish National Stud’s Invincible Spirit feature prominently. On Friday his daughter Nazeef showed she is one of the most improved horses in training when she won her sixth consecutive start, annexing the Group 1 Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes.

Twenty-four hours later and Invincible Spirit’s grandson Oxted ran out a comfortable winner of a vintage Group 1 Darley July Cup. While Oxted was giving his sire Mayson (Invincible Spirit) his first Group 1 winner, Nazeef become her sire’s 19th winner at the highest level, but his first of 2020.
