James Morrison Is A Top Tip For The Trophee Hassan II

The European Tour makes its long awaited return following a five-week pre-Masters break and we've got four tempting tips for the Trophee Hassan II, which takes place at the Royal Golf Club Dar Es Salam in Morocco...

Tips James Morrison (each way)    Best Bet @ 33 / 1  
Pablo Larrazabal (each way) @ 40 / 1  
Richie Ramsay (each way) @ 80 / 1  
Robert Rock (each way) @ 100 / 1  

The Head Of The Market

The venue hosted this event since 1971 before moving to Agadir from 2011 to 2015, with the Royal Golf Club again taking up hosting duties as of last year. It helps to be big off the tee at a course that weighs in at 7,615 yards but the 2016 edition would suggest that scrambling stats and a hot putter are vital.

It is a course that Dean Burmester should enjoy as he is massive off the tee and ranks inside the top-seven on the European Tour for putts per greens in regulation. Burmester tied 14th in this event last year and he is an 18/1 favourite this week.

Burmester isn't always the most accurate off the tee though and we are happy to swerve him, as well as a couple of other short priced contenders. Joost Luiten (22/1) tied 14th with Burmester here during what was a stellar 2016 campaign but he has yet to hit the heights this term, while defending champion, Jeunghun Wang (22/1), has won three times on the Tour now but the South Korean arrives off the back of a pair of 78s at Augusta.

James Morrison To Ride The Wave Of Momentum

We are going to side with James Morrison as our best bet though as he is capable of carrying on the momentum that saw him go 23-12-4-6 prior to the European Tour's break. Morrison, who ranks 11th for putts per GIR, was in such good form and we are backing him for a first European Tour title since the 2015 Open de Espana.
Tip #1: James Morrison (each way) @ 33/1 with Betfred.

Meanwhile, Pablo Larrazabal might be inspired by the success of his compatriot, Sergio Garcia, at Augusta on Sunday and the Spaniard does tend to enjoy playing in Morocco, where he has gone 9-4-MC-3 in his last four visits. A four-time winner on the European Tour, Larrazabal tied 2nd in Abu Dhabi earlier this year and he makes each-way appeal in a tournament that has seen the past seven winners come from a starting price of 35/1 or bigger.
Tip #2: Pablo Larrazabal (each way) @ 40/1 with Betfred.com.

The Long Shots

Richie Ramsay is another with a fine record in Morocco as his last five appearances have seen him go 7-17-15-11-1. The 2015 champion (at Agadir) should cope well with the change in venue and he did tie for 12th at the Tshwane Open recently.
Tip #3: Richie Ramsay (each way) @ 80/1 with Betfred.

Finally, Robert Rock is a player who tends to perform well at courses he enjoys, which would appear to apply to the Royal Golf Club Dar Es Salam, where Rock tied for 7th in 2010 and tied for 3rd in 2016. His form this year isn't much to write home about but he is as close to a 'horse for the course' as we can find and he makes great appeal at a triple figure price.
Tip #4: Robert Rock (each way) @ 100/1 with Sky Bet.
