Defending champion Peter Hanson does not compete this year and one of the players he beat in a playoff last year, Peter Lawrie, is 25/1 with .
One to watch may be Anthony Wall. After a series of decent performances recently, the Englishman is 34/1 to win with Unibet and may be well up there in the places come Sunday. He also performed very well here last year, finishing one shot adrift of a playoff chance.
The Scandinavians perform well here, a Swede winning the last 2 events, and Soren Hansen, of Denmark, will look to build on his excellent Irish Open display; he is 33/1 with Coral. Fellow Dane Thorbjorn Olesen is also in a bit of form of late. If he makes a cut, he performs strongly, as 2nd places at the Italian and French Opens showed; Olesen is 35/1 with Paddy Power.
Olesen finished runner up to Robert Rock at the Italian earlier this year and Rock is 40/1 (Betdaq) to have more success here.
