It was a timely triumph for the six-year-old mare as she is going to the Tattersalls December Sale next week.
Jockey William Carson was never too far off the pace set by Spifer and got a dream run on the rails.
Tinshu (5-1) quickened nicely and held the late thrust of Robin Hoods Bay by a neck, with the fast-finishing Emerald Wilderness third.
"She's for sale on Monday at the December Sales, but she won't be going for nothing," said trainer Derek Haydn Jones .
"With the form she's in now, the plan is if she doesan't sell she'll come back for the Listed race she won here last year."
Carson said: "Last time here the race didn't go plan.
"I had instructions to stay closer to the pace and she's pulled out all the stops."
The rider was completing a 29-1 double after earlier steering home the Stuart Williams-trained The Strig (4-1 co-favourite) in the Betfred Mobile Sports Handicap.
The Strig got on top in the last half a furlong to outpoint Roy's Legacy by three-quarters of a length.
"I get there a bit too soon - he was half pulling up at the end - but he stuck on well at least," the jockey told At The Races.
Mighty Yar (11-1) made a highly promising debut for trainer Sir Henry Cecil when taking division one of the British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Stakes under Eddie Ahern.
Ahern said: "He had a bad draw and we went really slow and I was out wider than I wanted to be.
"But when they travel like that and they're going slow you can get away with it.
"He's a fine, big horse and there's a fair bit of improvement in him."
Newcomer Demonic was sent off the 6-4 favourite to complete a quick double for Cecil and Ahern in division two.
However, he was only fourth as Zeus Magic (4-1), ridden by Liam Keniry, got off the mark at the third attempt for trainer David Elsworth.
Keniry said: "We went a nice gallop which helped him.
"He settled beautifully and he'll be a stayer next year.
"I thought it was quite a nice maiden. It took him a while to get organsied and the mile was plenty short enough for him."
Polar Venture produced a neat turn of foot over a furlong out to get off the mark in the Betfred "The Bonus King" Maiden Stakes.
The 30-100 shot, trained by William Haggas and ridden by Adam Beschizza, reaped the benefit of a debut third earlier this month to score by a length and a quarter from Summer Sun.
"We've spent a long time waiting for him to run. He had an injury in the spring and so it's nice for him to get off the mark as a three-year-old," said Haggas' wife and assistant, Maureen.
Natasha Eaton kept Alison Hutchinson's eight-year-old Strike Force (20-1) up to his work to land the Lingfield Marriott Hotel & Country Club Handicap.
Adam Kirby brought the Jamie Osborne-trained Corporal Maddox (5-4 favourite) from last to first in the short straight to win the Betfred "The Home of Goals Galore" Claiming Stakes.
