Alex Levy shot 63,61 in his two rounds here last year to secure victory after 36 holes and represents the best bet in the field
We have joint favourites in the shape of Wiesberger and Kaymer. At 12/1 they are not worth dismissing but with the amount of birdies on offer here I don't feel any of the two of them represent betting value. Kaymer has a modest record with two top10s from five starts here. Wiesberger has a better record with two top 5s in four starts. Wiesberger has had a solid year and rates the best chance of the two, however I don't feel the urge to jump in whenever this event will be fought out by many golfers at the business end. With the nature of the course, driveable par 4s etc it makes the finale very volatile, so I'll be looking further down the market for those a shade bigger priced.
Our top selection has to be the defending champion Alex Levy. He hasn't had the year he would have expected after a very successful first few years on the tour. A couple of third placed finishes has been the best he could do this year but returning to the scene of his last victory could well be the jump lead that the Frenchman needs. He posted a top 20 finish last week at Woburn which is a lot better than what it merely suggests. His game doesn't suit a tight track like Woburn and I am very impressed with that finish after some dodgy performances of late. He shot 63,61 in his two rounds here last year to secure victory after 36 holes and he represents the best bet in the field for me at 30/1.
