Jeev believes Asians have the Angel - for UBS victory.

Defending champion Miguel Angel Jimenez is hoping to become only the second player ever to defend a UBS Hong Kong Open, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year at Fanlang.

Although Jimenez could not only put his name on the winner's trophy for the third time - but the record books for defending the title, India's Jeev Singh fancies his chances and says the Europeans are very strong, but the Asians have the game to win.

“It all comes down to how sharp a player’s game is and how he is going to handle himself mentally in the last round,” said Jeev, who is confident after last week's victory in Singapore.

Rory Sabbatini, 20/1 and four-time winner on the PGA tour shows his excitment about his Hong Kong debut:  "The guys on the PGA Tour who've played at Fanling tell me it's a great course and a fantastic event, and the fact that it's the 50th tournament will make it even more special. I know as well that Hong Kong is a great city, so it promises to be a memorable trip."

The ones to watch:

  • Miguel Angel Jimenez - 14/1 : Won here in 2004 & 2007 defending Champion. Won after tense last day shootout against Robert Karlsson.
  • Jeev Mikha Singh - 16/1 : Has form after victory in last week's Singapore Open - currently top of the UBS order of merit.
  • Colin Montgomerie - 40/1: Those looking for a bit of British interest might fancy a bit of Monty. The Scot has previous: victory in 2005.
  • Jose Maria Olazabal - 50/1: won in Hong Kong 7 years ago and to do so had to birdie the last three holes of his final round. Suffering from back problems & will be one to be wary of in the betting.
