Course And Current Form Makes Levy A Clear Pick For The Maybank Championship Malasyia

The European Tour rolls into Kuala Lumpur for the Maybank Championship Malaysia at the Saujana Golf and Country Club on Thursday and we've picked out four selections for this week's action...

Tips Alexander Levy (each way) - T55    Best Bet @ 14 / 1

David Lipsky (each way) - T17 @ 50 / 1  
Liang Wen Chong (each way) - MC @ 250 / 1  

The Head Of The Market

This tournament was originally held at the Selangor Golf Club in 2016 and it was Marcus Fraser who emerged a 225/1 winner! The venue changed hands in 2017 as it moved to the current Saujana course and it was Fabrizio Zanotti who took victory after starting as a 175/1 shot.

The limited evidence is very much in the favour of big-priced winners but the quality of the field is increasing year-on-year and Henrik Stenson is an 8/1 favourite with Coral. The 2016 Open Championship winner has started the new campaign in decent fashion, going 8th and 6th in two events in 2018 so far, and he has previous form at the course as he tied 3rd at Saujana back in 2005.

Saujana previously hosted the Malaysian Open in 1999, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2009 before taking on hosting duties of the Maybank Championship last year, with Alexander Levy very much at the forefront of our betting plans after he tied for 4th twelve months ago.

The Frenchman has been in fine fettle so far this year too as he played a part in Europe's victory at the EurAsia Cup before he finished 7th in Abu Dhabi and 4th in Dubai, with the stars very much aligning for a man with course and current form this week.

The 29-year-old ranks 2nd for greens in regulation stats on the tour and he is putting well - which are likely to be important stats during the four rounds on this soft, undulating course - and he looks well set to add a fifth European Tour victory to his CV.
Tip #1: Alexander Levy (each way) @ 14/1 with Coral - 1/5 odds on 7 places.

The Best Of The Rest

Chris Paisley is another in-form player who warrants attention as he won his first European Tour title at the South African Open recently before following up with successive top-five finishes in the desert. He is red hot with putter in hand and his form shows no sign of cooling. Expect the inspired 31-year-old to improve on his tie for 41st at Saujana last year.
Tip #2: Chris Paisley (each way) @ 33/1 with Betfred - 1/5 odds on 6 places.

David Lipsky finished runner-up in this tournament last year and the American has unfinished business in Kuala Lumpur. The 2014 European Masters winner endured a tough opening to the year but he bounced back to form with a tie for 6th in Dubai last week and he is worth chancing at 50/1.
Tip #3: David Lipsky (each way) @ 50/1 with Boylesports - 1/5 odds on 6 places.

Finally, we're going to pick Liang Wen Chong as our 250/1 shot to continue the trend of big-priced winners! It's almost 11 years since the Chinese player last won a European Tour event but he will no doubt have been inspired by fellow countryman Hao-Tong Li's victory in Dubai on Sunday and Chong did win on the Japanese Tour last year.

A couple of top-30s to start 2018 have been solid enough from the 39-year-old and he is a player with course form thanks to his experience of the Malaysian Open at Saujana, where he has finished 8-34-7-34 in four appearances during his career.
Tip #4: Liang Wen Chong (each way) @ 250/1 with Boylesports.
