Wind Fire and Jamie Spencer overcame interference to take the Betfred Scurry Stakes at Sandown under Jamie Spencer.

The 17/2 chance was carried across the course by errant pacesetter Hay Chewed in the final stages, but still managed to poke her nose in front to take the Listed contest by a neck.

Favourite G Force, who overcame his wide draw to enjoy plenty of cover in the early stages, made steady progress from out of the pack but never looked quite like he was going to catch the front pair and had to settle for third place, a further length adrift.

The David Brown-trained winner was among the best as a juvenile last season where her efforts included third to American ace No Nay Never in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Campaigned over six and seven furlongs when unplaced in her previous two runs this campaign, the Qatar Racing-owned filly returned to her best at the minimum trip here. Brown said: "This is a really good filly, but I was worried today with the bad draw. Jamie has given it a brilliant ride.

"She could do with the ground even faster. She has got great speed. I'd got half a mind to go to Ayr next week, but we are looking towards the Nunthorpe."
