SA Open Day 2 Trade

I've been talking up Thomas Aiken on the blog and Twitter all week for the SA Open. The Serengeti course sets up perfectly for him with it's length and extremely wide fairways and he's now in prime position to strike after a good round 1 in the tougher conditions. Out early on day 2 and currently lurks 3 shots back on -4. If weather conditions are similar to today, with the early starters playing in gentle winds, we could see Aiken go low, both in terms of score and odds. A moderate round and we should be able to get out for no liability.

Trade of the week: Place 2 units on Thomas Aiken @ 20.0. Trade after round 2, if possible.

Update (Result): Aiken did indeed get off to a flyer and traded as low as 6.6 and some of you may have cashed in. Unfortunately he slowed down towards the back of his round and some of the later starters went well which pushed his price back out to 15.0, leaving us with +0.66pts profit. Please note that in the longrun, it's generally better to wait to trade at the end of the day's play.
