Novice hurdler Sir Scorpion (6g Scorpion-Lady Goldilocks, by Mister Lord) won his second consecutive start at Fairyhouse on Easter Sunday when winning the Grade C Novice H’cap Hurdle under A P McCoy.
The 6/4 favourite, bred by Aisling Fitzpatrick, prevailed by a length and a quarter in J P McManus’s colours and a trip to the Punchestown Festival could now be on the agenda.
“We’ll have to see how he comes out of this before thinking about Punchestown. Tony said he’ll stay further,” said trainer Tom Mullins.
The victory continued a great recent run for Scorpion, who is standing for €4,000 at Castlehyde Stud in 2015.
