Boric closes in on double


Boric bids for backto-back wins in the High­land Na­tional on the fi­nal day of the Perth Fes­ti­val to­day.

Si­mon Waugh’s Northum­ber­land raider, rid­den by reg­u­lar partner Callum Bew­ley, faces 11 ri­vals in the £25,000 marathon which is staged over three and three-quar­ter miles at the Scone track.

Mor­peth-based Waugh said of his sta­ble star: “He’s fine and in good form. With a bit of luck and all be­ing well he should run a big race.”

Among the op­po­si­tion to Boric are Mil­bor­ough, win­ner of the 2015 Eider Chase for Ayr­shire trainer Ian Dun­can, Sandy Thom­son’s 2016 Scot­tish Bor­ders Na­tional win­ner Harry The Vik­ing, and re­cent Mid­lands Grand Na­tional third Bal­ly­ma­lin rep­re­sent­ing Nigel and Sam Twis­ton-Davies. l To­day’s race cards – Page 48
