Well done Master Fleetwood for bringing home the bacon last week.

Wouldn't be surprised to see him put in another good performance this week, but for a 1st time winner to take two on the trot is maybe asking a bit much.

I'm not deserting my Spanish buddies..  Jorge Campillo @ 150/1 E/W, and Edoardo De La Riva @ 125/1 E/W.

Alexander Levy. A young man with a big future in the game. I can see this fella having a say. 200/1 E/W

Scott Jamieson. I don't know why. Had a mare here last year, but I have a gut feeling. Probably last night's curry. 200/1 E/W

Tempted by Dubuisson, but price a bit skinny for me.

Where are Alex Noren, Jamie Donaldson, and Marcel Siem ?  Are they injured ?

Good luck.

If past renditions of the Wales Open are anything to go by then expect the unexpected as we have had some very big priced winners and course and current form do not always point the way to winners. I have gone for three big priced outsiders who will hopefully give us a run for our money.
Paul Waring was very nearly a pick last week at Gleneagles because he had a good scoring average there - luckily I didn't put him up as he came agonisingly close to a decent payout when he finished 6th. He holds the second lowest scoring average at Celtic Manor of those on show this week (behind Gonzo) at 69.88 who have played the venue at least twice. Those starts came in 2008/9 but I think he is a better player now and is certainly in good form this year. Apart from last weeks 6th he has also been 4th in the Spanish Open, 5th in Austria and 10th in the BMW International. As a man in form on a course he can play I give him a good chance this week - 0.5 ew 66/1 Betfair Fixed Odds.
Joel Sjoholm seems to like the venue having finished 8th in each of the past two years. That in itself wouldn't necessarily be enough to get me involved but when you look at his Challenge tour form he was 2nd and 3rd at the nearby Vale Hotel course - he sure loves the Welsh Valleys! He hasn't been in the best of form this year but after a horrible opening round in Russia he turned things around and each of his last seven rounds have been under par. If the putter warms up he could find himself in contention again 0.4 ew 125/1
Last man up for me is Tom Lewis who seems to have disappeared from the face of the planet as quickly as he appeared. After winning on his third pro start he has really struggled and lost all confidence. Earlier this year he sought the advice of Luke Donald who helped him out and Lukes' brother became his caddie. Last month he went to Butch Harmon for some advice and Butch has taken him "under his wing" and the results are already beginning to show with a steady if unspectacular improvement in results. He was already in a slump when he played here last year but managed 35th - he was 3rd for ball striking that week but practically last for putting. It is just a hunch but I think he will return to winning ways fairly soon 0.25 ew 125/1

Tom Lewis had a swing change after he won at his 3rd many others who changed their swing.....bye bye

Dyson - Win only @ 40 and Top 5 @ 11

Quiros - E/W @ 66s

Pepperell - Win only @ 130 and Top 5 @ 23

Lewis - E/W @ 125s

Soren Hansen - Win only @ 380 and Top 5 @ 44

Fisher seems the obvious pick with course and current form, but price looks skinny. Pepperell, Henry, Lewis, Sjoholm, Campillo, Zanotti are where my darts have landed - hopefully one of them can get in the mix.

had a wee nibble at Kofsted there now @ 23.
Played well this afternoon, and 1 off the lead.
Took Quense at 117.5 and Damien McGraine @ 48s for a wee interest tomorrow.

Best Wishes to Bernard Gallagher.

I would normally be jumping aboard the BOURDY train here but he has left me with my head in my hands on numerous occasions, so instead i will be playing CHRIS WOOD.....lets hope yesterdays round was a mere blip.

RCB looks very nicely posotioned but i cant be playing at his current price, i'd take that tomorrow but not today.

Good luck all

I am going to take this leader on. Other than holding on in Madeira he has gone backwards when in contention this year. Happy to take the field against him at a shade less than evens.
