The pick of the pedigrees on a fantastic Friday of racing

Islington: will see her seventh runner line up at Nottingham on Friday
1 of 1

1m½f Castle Rock Brewery Session IPA Fillies' Novice Stakes

Nottingham 6:15

Invincible Spirit also has a regally bred runner in this contest with 320,000gns yearling Bedwyyah declared in the colours of Derby-winning owner Saeed Suhail. 

Another plus for her is the fact she shares her damsire, Cozzene, with Cheveley Park Stud sire Pivotal.

Fraiha also catches the eye, as a Camelot half-sister to Listed-winning sprinter-miler Cristal Fizz out of a Galileo mare.

From a pedigree perspective, though, the clear standout is Floria Tosca, a daughter of Shamardal, who now covers only a select book of Maktoum mares, out of former Ballymacoll Stud mare Islington. 

Bred by Ballymacoll, Floria Tosca is the eighth of 11 consecutive fillies out of the mare, who emulated her dam Hellenic by winning the Yorkshire Oaks - not once, but twice.

Floria Tosca will run in the colours of her trainer Luca Cumani's Fittocks Stud, having been bought for 260,000gns as a Tattersalls Book 1 yearling, while the 19-year-old Islington was acquired by Blandford Bloodstock for 270,000gns last December.
