Regular readers may have noticed Jason Dufner land a place at big odds in Canada at the weekend after failing miserably when twice carrying our cash over the previous fortnight. I am rather concerned that either of last week’s big-priced failures, Rafael Cabrera-Bello or Fabrizio Zannotti, will do something similar as their best form entitles them to great respect in this company. However, I’d be lying if I said there was anything encouraging about last week’s performances.
 
My final two selections are GREGORY BOURDY and ROBERT-JAN DERKSEN. Both are basically journeymen at this level, but capable of challenging a few times every season. Bourdy is pretty consistent, and with three top-10s in his last ten starts, has a similar chance to many of the aforementioned characters who are much shorter odds than the Frenchman’s 60/1. As for Derksen, he took the eye at Barseback, fighting back well from a very poor start and topping the crucial greens in regulation stats. As a two-time former European Tour winner, the Dutchman has enough about him to challenge in this pretty weak company.
 
Good Luck!
