Selections

Finau and Stanley each way at 18/1

Finau makes his first start since a Top 5 at the Masters and he pairs up with Stanley who has been in some pretty solid form with a couple of Top 25’s in his last 3 starts and that includes a T21 at Augusta 2 weeks back.

 

Grace and Harding each way at 45/1

Harding made a name for himself at Augusta 2 weeks back when he finished just outside the Top 10 after leading early.  The South African has been in great form this year and while Branden Grace hasn’t perhaps been at the top of his game, there are signs that he is returning to form and they could form a deadly duo.

 

Glover and Reavie each way at 40/1

Glover was in the wilderness for some time, but is playing some good golf again and Reavie has tailed off a bit after a promising start to the year, but did finish in the top 30 last week.
