High Heeled draws clear of Four Winds.

High Heeled draws clear of Four Winds.

High Heeled kicked her male rivals into touch and staked her claim for the Oaks when finishing with a flourish in the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup Conditions Stakes at Newbury.

Continuing Barry Hills' red-hot run of form, the only filly in the line-up displayed a lightning turn of foot to reel in The Queen's Four Winds and score by a little under two lengths.

The Michael Hills-ridden 12-1 chance had signed off her juvenile campaign with a sixth-place finish in the Goffs Fillies Million sales race, and was introduced at 20-1 by Ladbrokes for the Oaks.

Totesport trimmed her to 25-1, while 33-1 is available with William Hill.

The winning trainer's son and assistant, Charlie, said: "She's a bonny filly and is very professional.

"She enjoyed the cut in the ground but is not very big so would handle most types of ground.

"We will see how she comes out of the race but there are plenty of options for her. She is a clean-winded filly and could go straight to the Oaks."

Four Winds soon led under Jamie Spencer but couldn't match the winner's kick inside the distance, and just edged Henry Cecil's Father Time for third at the post.

His trainer, Michael Bell, added: "Time will tell us what the form is like but it was a very satisfactory reappearance and was nearly an extremely satisfying one.

"We'll go away, put our heads together and make a plan."
