Finally up is the Scott Rowe Solicitors Open maiden race for four,five,six and seven year-olds in which A Tipple Or Two will be well backed on her previous form when second at Cothelstone for the Caroline Keevil team. Businessman also catches the eye as a new recruit to the Les Jefford team, as an ex Irish import with place form and the yard in winning form.
