Former champion jockey Jamie Spencer rode a winner at Lingfield in his first race since abandoning plans to retire.

The 34-year-old Irishman won on 11-4 shot Master Of Irony on Wednesday.

Spencer, who had planned to quit after learning he would not be retained as the number one jockey at Qatar Racing, intends to have a break before resuming riding as a freelance.

"I'm going to take a holiday until February time and refresh and recharge," he told At The Races.
