Ballyvic Boru: impressive hurdling debut

BALLYVIC BORU made a winning hurdling debut when taking the two-mile Maiden Hurdle at Perth quite impressively in the hands of Tom Scudamore. Always handy and travelling well, he moved up easily to take the lead after jumping the third last. Jumping the final two flights well, he cruised home three-and-a-quarter lengths clear of Play The Game in second. They pulled 18 lengths clear of the third horse.

SCOTTSDALE followed up his success at Market Rasen last time with an equally comfortable victory in the closing two-mile bumper at Perth this afternoon. Partnered by Tom Scudamore the lightly raced gelding by Cape Cross was always travelling with ease, well in touch, before taking it up inside the three. He soon put daylight between himself and the rest of the field, Tom barely shook the reins and he was eased crossing the line.

A great double today and both were very pleasing performances.
