Wind In Her Hair, who is in foal to Arazi, made a triumphant final racecourse appearance in Germany yesterday, winning the Group One Aral Pokal at Gelsenkirchen-Horst.

The 1994 Oaks runner-up, saddled by trainer John Hills and ridden by his brother, Richard Hills, took the pounds 86,000 prize by two lengths from Lecroix. She started at almost 13-1. John Hills said: "I was confident that she was at last back to her best, and the filly didn't disappoint me.''

Clive Brittain's Ionio finished last of the seven runners under Michael Roberts, but the jockey enjoyed success with a double on Branston Abby and Whimpy.
