Venue

The Czech Masters was added to the European Tour schedule in 2014 and will again be held at the Albatross Golf Club in Prague on its pristine 7,516-yard, par 72 course. With few water hazards, the course relies on long grass, tall trees and sloping or ridged greens with tricky run-offs for protection. Jamie Donaldson won the inaugural edition last August, but will not return to defend his title due to injury.

Favourites

Victor Dubuisson is the market leader at a best price of 14/1 (Sky Bet, Paddy Power) and the big-hitting Frenchman, who placed in the top 20 at the US PGA on his last outing, should make light work of those 7,500 yards. Kristoffer Broberg is one of the tour’s form players and is among the frontrunners at 18/1, ahead of Eddie Pepperell, James Morrison and Matthew Fitzpatrick. David Horsey, winner of last week’s Made in Denmark event, is a 40/1 chance, but that win came completely out of the blue and he posted one of many missed cuts here last year.

Tips

Kristoffer BrobergThe aforementioned KRISTOFFER BROBERG was runner-up in Denmark last week after carding a 62 on Sunday, continuing a run of good results for the Swede, including a top 10 at the European Masters and a 12th place finish in France in July. He also finished a creditable T32 in The Open Championhip at Royal Liverpool last season and in a field short on genuine quality he probably represents good value at 18s with Coral.

Bradley DredgeBRADLEY DREDGE was one of our tips last week and he played well for the most part, only to finish an infuriating single shot out of the places (T6) thanks to a bogey at his 72nd hole. Still, we will stick with the Welshman simply because he is the stand-out candidate this week. He was the runner-up to Jamie Donaldson here in Prague last year and his overall form merits a much shorter price than Coral’s 30/1 (as short as 20/1 elsewhere).

Anthony-WallA 12th place finish at The Open at St Andrews all but secured ANTHONY WALL’s playing rights for next season and so he can relax into the autumn. The 40-year-old Englishman enjoyed a purple patch in the spring, including second place at the Joburg Open, and his fine performance in Scotland hinted at more good things to come. He played solidly here last year without challenging (T39) but take a chance on him at best odds of 33/1.
