Zanotti Is Looking Like A Fab Tip For The Volvo China Open

The European Tour heads to Beijing for the Volvo China Open at the Topwin Golf and Country Club from Thursday, and we are backing the in-form Fabrizio Zanotti to pick up a second win of the year come Sunday...

Tips Fabrizio Zanotti (each way)    Best Bet @ 28 / 1  
David Lipsky (each way) @ 33 / 1  
Lucas Bjerregaard (each way) @ 60 / 1  

The Head Of The Market

There is very little course form to go on as the Ian Woosnam-designed Topwin Golf and Country Club first hosted the China Open in 2016 and it was home favourite Li Haotong who took victory. The Chinese star returns as a 40/1 chance for his title defence and he could thrive again on the course despite some indifferent recent displays.

Bernd Wiesberger tied 28th here twelve months ago but he is a 10/1 favourite after securing his fourth European Tour title with victory at the Shenzhen International last week, while Ross Fisher is a touch further back at 11/1 as he bids to build on a run of three top-fives in four starts with a first tournament win since the 2014 Tshwane Open.

Meanwhile, Alexander Levy again performed well with a tie for 8th at the Shenzhen last week and he is a 25/1 chance for the China Open, which is a tournament he actually won at Genzon Golf Club in 2014.

The Selections

It is Fabrizio Zanotti who heads our betting shortlist for Beijing though as the Paraguayan is in ridiculously good touch at the moment and he looks decent value at 28/1 (Bet 365). Zanotti, who tied 9th at Topwin last year, has already won on the European Tour this year thanks to his success in Malaysia and he has since tied 12th at the WGC event in Mexico before tying for 5th at the Shenzhen on Sunday.
Tip #1: Fabrizio Zanotti (each way) @ 28/1 with Bet 365.

David Lipsky chased Zanotti home with a runner-up finish in Malaysia and he picked up another top-five last week, which was a result that propelled him into the world's top-100 in the rankings. The American, who also tied 9th at Topwin twelve months ago, has a fantastic record in Asia as he actually won the 2014 Asian Tour Order of Merit and he has racked up five successive top-25 finishes in Asia, including three top-five efforts on the bounce.
Tip #2: David Lipsky (each way) @ 33/1 with B365.

Finally, length off the tee appeared to be something of an advantage at the 7,261 yard, par-71 course at Topwin last year and that brings us to the massive-hitting Lucas Bjerregaard, who actually tied 3rd in this event in 2016.

The Dane could offer some each-way value as he continues his search for a maiden European Tour title and it is telling that some of his career-best efforts have arrived in Asia, including a runner-up effort in Hong Kong, as well as top-three finishes at the BMW Masters and China Open.
Tip #3: Lucas Bjerregaard (each way) @ 60/1 with Betfred.
