After Katayama's play off defeat and Jean Hugo's sixth place last week, on top of Kaymer's play off loss the week before, you could say the blog's jinx is alive and well!! However Kim's four birdies in five holes to force the play off weren't really Katayama's fault and he did ensure a profitable week for the blog.

This week there are some abysmal prices doing the rounds. Kenny Perry's outstanding course form hasn't been missed and the 11/1 is a terrible price, though his win chance is undeniable. However defending champion is Kirk Triplett and 45/1 is a tasty e/w offering for a player who was also 3rd here in 2013. He gets the e/w vote here.

Feng Shanshan may not be a familiar name but 6 top 10s in her last nine events and course form of 2,1 on her last two visits, means that 16/1 is just about acceptable and together with top 10 cover at slight odds against, she is the headline play of the week in the Sime Darby event. When the sturdy Chinese lady hits form she has a consistency that is remarkable as witnessed by a similar run last year of seven top tens in nine.
Ha Na Jang, a blog favourite is also interesting at 28/1 off a minor play off win at the weekend and a couple of recent runners up spots. Lack of course form the slight negative, but at the price her class might mean that doesn't matter.

Elsewhere I'm swerving the President's Cup and in the British Masters have no strong opinion. Marc Warren though at 66/1 e/w with Stan James is a classy player who knows how to win and has been hanging around leaderboards with more frequency recently.  66/1 is a decent e/w bet, and even though Jens Fahrbring was disappointing last week, he's out to 28/1 as a result and his previous two third places make him the final and small e/w play of the week in a desperately soft Challenger tour event.

As always thanks for popping in and good luck if you are tempted by any of these.
