Spencer celebrates his winning ride.

Spencer celebrates his winning ride.

Jamie Spencer produced a perfect ride to land the Sandringham Handicap on Moneycantbuymelove.

Spencer was right out the back in the early stages on the Michael Bell-trained filly but knew how much horse was underneath him on the 9-2 favourite.

A winner of a Listed race at Goodwood on her last start, she followed through Golden Stream, running in the Queen's silks, who briefly looked like winning.

However, Spencer was seen at his strongest and she powered home by two lengths with a further three lengths back to Please Sing and Silver Games, both trained by Mick Channon.

Bell said: "I knew she was well handicapped as she was rated 96 and after winning the Height Of Fashion Stakes at Goodwood I couldn't believe the handicapper didn't put her up.

"She's pretty smart this filly and Jamie rode her beautifully."

Spencer added: "This place is so hard so it is great to have a winner and hopefully I can kick on."

Sir Michael Stoute said of the runner-up: "She might be better at seven furlongs but she's bred to be a mile and a half filly."

Channon said of his pair: "For one split second I thought Please Sing was going to come and win but the great thing is she showed me she got the trip today. The other filly travelled really well but just got tired."
