European Open - London Club

The 2nd year running at the London and Ross Fisher was on the radar but his runner up last week has made his price far too short to go near, although he might be worth backing for a fast start. Big hitters have an advantage on this wide open course which lead me towards 2 in particular.

1.5pts E/W Ross Fisher First round leader @ 18/1 (general) Out early in the morning which usually means the best of the conditions and if he continues whenre he left off last week he may hit the front early on.

0.75pts E/W Soren Hansen @ 50/1(ladbrokes,skybet)Been sneaking along mainly under the radar but signs are that he is about to strike and this is the type of course when his quality can really give him an edge

0.5pts E/W Gonzalo Fdez Castano @ 50/1 (ladbrokes,betfred) Steady Eddie this year on tour, has improved his driving and a price that big is an E/W price I'd take on him on any event with a course like The London Club

0.5pts E/W Johan Edfors @ 80/1 (general) Misleading price due to woeful performance last week but wentworth really doesnt suit his game. If he can recapture the form he showed 2 weeks ago in Ireland(where he also showed he can handle wind which is likely to be a factor here)he will be up there

-0.5pts E/W Alvaro Quiros @ 40/1 (general) Massive hitter will get alot of birdie chances here

-1 pt Marcel Siem top 20 finish @ 6/1 (totesport)
-0.5pts top 10 finish @ 18/1 (bet365) Sticking with the big hitters trend this week and there are not many further than Siem off the tee. Makes a lot of birdies but also a lot of mistakes which is why I'm staying away from an EW bet.
