Wen can win in Singapore

The Singapore Open was added to the European Tour schedule last year but it has previously been played on the Asian Tour.

The Sentosa Golf Club is a tricky course because the rough is very hard to play from and if a powerful drive heads off-course, it could be difficult to save par, accurate driving is essential.

There are some fantastic golfers playing at Sentosa Golf Club this week, a real class field.  Francesco Molinari (14/1) will be looking for an Asian double after winning the WGC-HSBC Champions event last week in fantastic style in Hong Kong.

He finished second in the Portugal Masters recently and could land back-to-back wins if he is not mentally jaded after last week's win.

McDowell (16/1) is looking to get the better of Kaymer (14/1) in the Race to Dubai by winning in Singapore on Sunday.  It is a happy hunting ground for McDowell , he came fifth in the event last year, so he has course form. He was let down last year by shooting a 74 in the fourth round.

He was very average in Hong Kong last week but he may have been worn out by his hard schedule.

Two weeks ago he won on the European Tour at Valderrama, and with the 'Race to Dubai' still to be won, punters can expect him to do well.

An interesting each-way pick could be Wen-Chong Liang at 50/1. In 2009, the defending champion Poulter (16/1) beat him by a single shot. He was poor at the HSBC Champions event in Hong Kong last week , but if you look past that result he could go close. He did manage a 69 in the final round last week, but his 79 on the first day was poor.

He came fourth in this event in 2006 and he was thirteenth in 2005, so he obviously enjoys playing in Singapore.  His only win on the European Tour was the Singapore Masters in 2007, so this event could kick-start his season.

Adam Scott's (14/1) previous form at Sentosa is fantastic. He has played at the course five times and has won twice. He has only finished worse than third once. He plays his best golf on these greens and although he is not in great form, he could be thereabouts come Sunday morning.

Simon Dyson (40/1) returns to the tour after a small break.  He was poor at the Andalucia Masters recently but his fondness for the heat and his time spent playing in the Far East should help him. He has had a good season and was being touted at one stage for Europe's Ryder Cup team.  He finished tenth on his sole outing at Sentosa two years ago despite a poor final round.  If he can build some consistency this weekend, he could be the main man to back each-way.
