Jamie Spencer has been confirmed as the retained jockey for Sheikh Fahad Al Thani's Qatar Racing operation.

The former champion jockey has signed a two-year contract with Sheikh Fahad, whose horses run under the Qatar and Pearl Bloodstock banners and is a fast emerging as a powerful presence on the racing scene.

The owner's racing manager and bloodstock advisor, David Redvers said: "I can confirm that we have agreed terms and that Jamie Spencer will be first jockey for Qatar Racing on a two-year contract, starting from January 1."

The 31-year-old rider had a stint as stable jockey for Aidan O'Brien in Ireland, while he has recently been retained to ride horses for owners Jim and Fitri Hay.

Bloodstock Al: @DanBriden Guess today will tell whether he takes in the Guineas; a prominent show + they may be tempted but otherwise you may well be right
Bloodstock Al: @DanBriden Suspect a good few of these will want further than a mile. Moonvoy has a sharper pedigree and could run into a place.
Bloodstock Al: @DanBriden @lucacumani Yes hoping he might turn out to be a Derby horse and maybe take in the Guineas en route #bestDerbytrial
