Reigning champion Rory Schlein is set to defend the Harrisons Scottish Open Championship at Armadale on Friday (tapes-up 7.30pm).

The rider nicknamed The Roo Boy will be seeking a record fifth title and the Aussie is having another great year at Wolverhampton and Somerset.

He has already scored a maximum at Armadale this season on Wolves’ pre-season visit.

Jordan Stewart is making his debut in the event and Victor Palovaara returns to Armadale along with former captain Theo Pijper who has concentrated on grass and long-track bookings this summer.

Cameron Heeps has quickly established himself as an exciting and popular member of the team and he also goes to tapes in the meeting postponed from last week.

Popular Kevin Doolan is an outstanding captain of Berwick Bandits has bags of experience around the tight Armadale track but former Monarchs skipper Sam Masters has been blocked from riding because of a visa restriction.
