In-form English duo Matt Wallace and Laurie Canter lead betting for the Portugal Masters, but winning tournaments has been a problem for both players and they can be faced at short prices.

Wallace has been winless since Made In Denmark 2018, while Canter is still awaiting his breakthrough on the European Tour. The man from Bath doesn’t even have a Challenge Tour title under his belt.

Best advice from Steve Palmer

Min Woo Lee 25-1

Lucas Herbert won the Bermuda Championship on Sunday and fellow Aussie Min Woo Lee could scroll the silverware a week later.

The Australians are a tight-knit group who seem to win in streaks – and the relationship between Herbert, 25, and Lee, 23, is particularly interesting. When Herbert won his first European Tour title in Dubai, Lee followed suit a fortnight later. Then, when Herbert won a second European Tour victory in Ireland, Lee won his second in Scotland a week later.

Regardless of any additional inspiration from seeing his boyfriend succeed in Bermuda, Lee may have the urge to perform in Portugal. The technically magnificent player has shown he can score well in all conditions – winning on wide open Scottish ties, then finishing second last time at Valderrama, the tightest track on the circuit.

It hasn’t been easy for Australian golfers to tour the world in these times of Covid – quarantine laws in the country are notoriously strict – but Lee reasonably flew to Florida after Valderrama for himself. train for Portugal.

Lee is very motivated for the end of this European Tour season, residing 58th in the world rankings and knowing that a place in the top 50 by the end of the year will give him access to all the major events of 2022. He finished 63rd in his only previous visit to Dom Pedro, but was outside the world top 350 at the time.

Best Next Bet

Adri Arnaus 45-1

Spain slugger Adri Arnaus was so close to success in his National Open last month – and would likely have become champion if Rafa Cabrera Bello hadn’t been entitled to a free drop from the big rough at the 72nd hole. A playoff loss resulted – a fourth place finish on the European Tour for Arnaus – but this week offers another great breakthrough opportunity.

There was an understandable Spanish Open hangover for Arnaus, but almost a month later he may be ready to rumble again. It has the power and the putting stroke to make Dom Pedro minced meat.

Arnaus, like Lee, has been around the track before – finishing 40th in 2019. He was fourth at the Portuguese Open in his Challenge Tour days.

Other selections

Romain Langasque 70-1

Victor Dubuisson 75-1

Pablo Larrazabal 70-1

A pair of French people based in Andorra are worth following at reasonable prices for their short trip to Vilamoura. Romain Langasque has recovered in recent weeks by finishing 11th in Valderrama, then 34th in Mallorca. The former amateur star, winner of the Challenge Tour in 2018, made her breakthrough on the European circuit during the Wales Open last year.

Langasque missed six cups in a row before his only previous start at Dom Pedro – and he missed three cups in a row after the event – but he finished 39th at Dom Pedro. The layout suits his style of attack and he can feature in the leaderboard.

Victor Dubuisson could also threaten. This enigmatic figure has made some solid changes over the past month – four laps in the 60s for 12th place at the Spanish Open, then four par laps or better for 20th place at the Mallorca Open. The former Ryder Cup star and two-time European Tour champion is clearly good enough to triumph in this category.

Complete the staking plan with Pablo Larrazabal, who was ill on the eve of the Mallorca Open last time around. An upset stomach made life difficult for Larrazabal, while being on the wrong side of a significant draw bias in the first two days. He lost his ball in a big rough on the second par-five hole, when he was only 25 yards from the pin in two strokes, and ended up carding a double bogey.

The writing was on the wall early for Larrazabal in Mallorca, but he was in good shape ahead of this event, with 20th place at the Spanish Open and the same position at the Andalusian Masters. He has three top-15s to his name at Dom Pedro.

Players to note

Thomas pieters
The Belgian finished 16th in Mallorca last time on the wrong side of the table. A half-decent week with the putter should see him make it into the Dom Pedro table.

Georges coetzee
The defending champion loves this course and must be respected. He usually arrives for the event in good shape, however, and hasn’t been in great shape lately.

Sam horsfield
The attacking center will appreciate the dimensions of Dom Pedro and expect to fight. A bad putting has the potential to derail his challenge.

Sébastien Söderberg
The powerful Swede has recorded two consecutive second places on the European Tour. Dom Pedro seems at his mercy in this form, but he lacked composure near the winning post.

Alvaro Quiros
The Spaniard has regained some form and confidence – and it is a former champion Dom Pedro who lived next to the course. Dangerman.

Course type Park

Course overview The Victoria has been the venue since 2007, with a few name changes along the way, and the 2005 World Cup was also staged on the course. This is a flat, exposed track similar in style to the Gulf Swing venues. The third by 481 yards, the seventh by 510 yards, and the 18th by 463 yards are the three most difficult passes. Lots of water hazards and huge, undulating greens present a challenge, but the fairways are wide and seven times the winning score was at least 20 under par. Oliver Fisher patented the first and only round of 59 of the European Tour during the second day of the Portugal Masters 2018. The three par five (the fifth, the 12th and the 17th), as well as the 15th par of 315 meters, waterless and drivable, are the most obvious birdie opportunities.

History of last year George Coetzee fought off Laurie Canter – the South African beating the Englishman with two strokes

Weather forecast Clear and sunny everywhere, with temperatures reaching a high of 19C. Gentle breezes, peaking at 13 mph Thursday afternoon

Type of player suited to the challenge Length has always been a big advantage in Victoria, with plenty of forced litters from the tee and plenty of holes lending themselves well to the big hitters. Par five require a vigorous strike to be hit in two strokes, and overwater practices at the 510-yard par seventh and difficult 18th become much easier if you can give your ball a healthy run. The 15th drivable is an easy birdie for bombers
