Ladbrokes have Welshman Jamie Donaldson and Holland’s Joost Luiten as the joint-favourites at 16/1.
There are few standout players in this field so I think this is a chance to have a punt on some of the players with longer prices.
The first player that really tempts me to part with my cash this week is Scott Jamieson at 33/1. Jamieson has started the season in very good form with a couple of impressive performances in the Middle East.
The Scotsman built on his 12th place finish in Qatar with a top five finish in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. He is the form pick this week and is worth a few pounds each-way.
There are a number of other players that look to be priced quite highly in this particular market. Gareth Maybin, at 50/1, has put in a couple of tidy performances so far this year and could well build on that in India where he has some experience.
At the same price though is the defending champion, S.S.P Chowrasia. For a man who has won this tournament twice, and on different courses against stronger fields, 50/1 looks a big price and I’ll be sticking a couple of pounds on the Indian.
My final pick for this week is going to be England’s Oliver Fisher at 66/1. Fisher retired after the first round last year and finished in eighth place in his other start in India.
Having claimed his first European Tour title last year, if he can get himself in contention again, he will have the confidence to go on and seal the victory in a field of this strength.
