Ryan Palmer has been very consistent this season, with seven top 25 finishes to his credit from 11 appearances and although he has gone off the boil at his last few events, he demands attention at Colonial, where he has a good previous record. He has placed in the top five in two of the last three years and was 14th on the other occasion. At 33/1 with Bet365 and Ladbrokes he looks a solid each-way bet.

Also worth a second look this week is Chris Stroud, who has improved a little over recent weeks after a poor first half of the season, but who has a decent record here – T13 T7 T14 – and could get himself going this week. Every firm except Coral has him in double figures and they go 125/1.

You’ll find Jonas Blixt at an even bigger price and although the Swede has had a poor year, missing the cut at his last four events, he played well at Augusta last month and has good experience of Colonial, having placed 10th and 11th on his two previous visits. Take a chance on him at 200/1 with Coral or Betfred.

David Toms is renowned for his straight-hitting which has enabled him to prosper on this par-70 layout a number of times, including when he won the title in 2011. He was back in the top five here last year and after his recent strong performance at the Players, where he shared 13th, he should be shorter than Coral’s price of 200/1.
