Suppose that $T=\left(\begin{smallmatrix} A&0\\U&B \end{smallmatrix}\right)$ is a formal triangular matrix ring, where $A$ and $B$ are rings and $U$ is a $(B, A)$-bimodule. Let $\mathfrak{C}_{1}$ and $\mathfrak{C}_{2}$ be two classes of left $A$-modules, $\mathfrak{D}_{1}$ and $\mathfrak{D}_{2}$ be two classes of left $B$-modules. We prove that $(\mathfrak{C}_{1},\mathfrak{C}_{2})$ and $(\mathfrak{D}_{1},\mathfrak{D}_{2})$ are admissible balanced pairs if and only if $(\textbf{p}(\mathfrak{C}_{1}, \mathfrak{D}_{1}), \textbf{h}(\mathfrak{C}_{2}, \mathfrak{D}_{2}))$ is an admissible balanced pair in $T$-Mod. Furthermore, we describe when $(\mathfrak{P}^{\mathfrak{C}_{1}}_{\mathfrak{D}_{1}}, \mathfrak{I}^{\mathfrak{C}_{2}}_{\mathfrak{D}_{2}})$ is an admissible balanced pair in $T$-Mod. As a consequence, we characterize when $T$ is a left virtually Gorenstein ring.
