MIA NICHOLLS is bidding to extend her 100 per-cent record at Hamilton Park’s Saints & Sinners annual card on Thursday night. The seven-pound claimer rides Abate for her trainer father Adrian in the £18,000 Patersons Of Greenoakhill Handicap over five-furlongs. “He’s a legend of a horse and gave me a winner on my first ride at the track last month,” she said. “We made all that day and then he gave me another win next time out at Haydock – hopefully he’ll give me another good spin.”
Top-weight and three-timer scorer Live In The Moment represents Newmarket-based Alice Haynes, who has registered one winner from her previous three runners at the Lanarkshire venue. Also in the line-up is John Quinn-trained JM Jungle, a Yorkshire raider with a win and two placed efforts from his three previous course appearances.
The evening gets underway with the Change Mental Health Saints & Sinners Amateur Jockeys’ Handicap over 1m 5f. Mia Nicholls’ brother Jack is on board Tafsir, one of the trio of runners saddled by Renfrewshire handler Jim Goldie.
