<p style="text-align:center"><br /><strong style="font-size:1.2em;text-align:center">Trophee Hassan</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, Red Course</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Rabat, Morocco </strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Par 72, Yards 7557</strong></p><p>This week we move to the European Tour for a preview of Trophee Hassan in Morocco on a Robert Trent-Jones design course in undulating parkland. Three years this course has been host offering a challenging strategic all-round test when scores up to +3 often make the cut. Robert Trent-Jones classic bunkering is synonymous with this course while wind and rain have often been a factor defending the layout from low scores. Alexander Levy, Eduardo Molinari and Korean Jeung-hun Wang have been the three course winners with a winning average score of seven under.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;End of the morning set up.

Last season he made a consistent impression on the European Tour especially with prominent British and Irish Open performances. Two starts ago at the Qatar Masters he was an impressive second and sixth last start in India. Previously a winner on the Challenge Tour and the South African Sunshine Tour we can expect him to be winning soon. Fellow South African Christian Bezuidenhout has been consistent of late having shown a previous liking for the course has to be respected.</p><p>England’s challengers are headed by Jordan Smith already a winner on the European Tour with the 2017 European Open looks to be a young player going places already showing promise from the desert swing earlier in season. He has a very similar profile as fellow Englishman Callum Shinkwin however, Shinkwin is yet to win on the European Tour despite many prominent efforts. Jack Senior is an entrant I am interested in when you consider one of his main tour best efforts was in 2016 here. James Morrison a former winner showed a return to form at the Indian Open and like Senior is a potential sleeper in the entry list.</p><p>Ireland's Paul Dunne noticeably played well twice at the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam course in recent weeks he has been plying his trade on the PGA tour of America after starting the current European Tour year impressively in the Australian co-sanctioned events.</p><p>Paul Waring showed good form on the Desert Swing earlier in the season and a return to his favourite venue after a couple of weeks off. Both years he competed here resulted in top 10 finishes and last season’s Nordea Masters winner will be looking forward to getting back to Morocco.</p><p>Spain’s Nacho Elvira has been in brilliant form in recent weeks with a sixth last time out in the Indian Open preceded by back to back 2<sup>nd</sup> place finishes in Qatar and Malaysia. He has already proved his liking for this weeks’ venue with a another 2<sup>nd</sup> place finish in 2016. Another Spaniard I like for Trophee Hassan is Adrian Otaegui who once he hits form tends to win or go very close. Last time out in the Indian Open he appeared to be trending in the right direction and has solid previous course form.</p><p>Italians seem to have a liking for this weeks’ venue Eduardo Molinari as we mentioned earlier a previous champion and Andrea Pavan’s breakthrough week on the European Tour was last year here with a 3<sup>rd</sup> place finish. Later in the season he won the Czech Masters and looks a potential winner here. Another Italian Renato Paratoe has showed a previous form at this venue and he is also winner on the European Tour winning the 2017 Nordea Masters like Paul Waring. Nino Bertasio is a fourth Italian with good results here with a nice 5<sup>th</sup> in 2016 and his last event the Indian Open he gave the impression his form was returning. This form line made me consider another Italian, recent Kenya Open winner Guido Migliozzi at a big price 175/1 (176.00) considering he won two starts ago and this looks a similar test of his game.</p><p>An eclectic mix of nationalities from Europe and around the globe for this weeks’ event. France having a particularly strong hand with the Defending champion Alexander Levy, Benjamin Herbert, Romain Langasque and Victor Dubuisson.</p><p>One final nationality I want to mention is Denmark's Lasse Jensen who also has a strong course form and correlation between Morocco and the Nordea Masters in Scandinavia. He has been in solid form at a slightly lower level recently and now back at a golf course we know he likes.</p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Adrian Otaegui – each way @66/1 (67.00) Coral</strong></em></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Andrea Pavan - each way @80/1 (81.00) Ladbrokes </strong></em></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Guido Migliozzi – each way @175/1 (176.00) Betfred</strong></em></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Nacho Elvira - Top 5 @15/2 (8.50) Unibet</strong></em></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Erik Van Rooyen - Top 10 @33/10 (4.30) Unibet</strong></em></a></p>
