Made In Denmark 2015: Each-way selections for this week's European Tour event

Rikard Karlberg - Mike's e/w selection in Denmark this week
Rikard Karlberg - Mike's e/w selection in Denmark this week

The team made a small profit at last week's US PGA thanks to Steve's pick Branden Grace finishing in a place at Whistling Straits, and this week the guys are in Denmark as we head back to the European Tour for a quintet of each-way selections...


Paul Krishnamurty: Back Chris Paisley @ 91.090/1

"As a fairly long-hitter with a decent short game, Paisley fits the right statistical profile, based on last year's evidence."

*Each-way terms: 1/4 odds, 5 places


Dan Geraghty: Back Garrick Porteous @ 301.0300/1

Following a string of impressive recent results, Matthew Fitzpatrick finds himself among the favourites this week in Denmark; I like the young Englishman's chances but at the prices I'm backing his ISM stablemate Garrick Porteous (at an enormous 300/1). Last year Porteous defeated Fitzpatrick three and two to win the Georgia Cup (an annual match between the winners of the British and US amateur championships). Like Fitzpatrick, Porteous turned professional in 2014; his career is taking a little longer to get going but he sits 49th in the Challenge Tour rankings and has every chance of promotion to the European Tour next year. Given his fantastic amateur links pedigree, this week's exposed course should hold no fears and unlike most weeks in his young career, he has course experience to draw on, having made the cut at last year's inaugural event.


Paul Krishnamurty: Back Chris Paisley @ 91.090/1

In a field lacking strength in depth, Chris Paisley looks worth a punt at big odds. This former Walker Cup player is making progress during his second European Tour campaign, faring well in 13th on his last visit to Scandinavia for the Nordea Masters before finishing an excellent, personal best third in the high-class BMW International Open. As a fairly long-hitter with a decent short game, Paisley fits the right statistical profile, based on last year's evidence.


Dan Thomas: Back Kristoffer Broberg @ 26.025/1

Without question this has been the toughest each-way selection I've had to make in my role as an occasional stand-in on the column so I'm going to be relatively cautious and stay near the top of the market, with Kristoffer Broberg at 25/1. The Swede has been in decent nick over the summer, with four top 15 finishes in his last six starts (excluding MatchPlay), and was in the top 30 on his course debut here last year. Broberg has a good track record in Scandinavia - his three Challenge Tour wins there in 2012 saw him promoted to the main European tour - and I'm hopeful he can go very close this week.


Steven Rawlings: Back Pelle Edberg @ 81.080/1

After his fourth placed finish in Switzerland, and a narrow defeat to James Morrison at the Paul Lawrie Match Play event, Sweden's Pelle Edberg will be very keen to get out on the course again and this looks a fantastic opportunity to at least place. As highlighted in the preview, there is plenty of evidence to suggest a link between this venue and Crans, where Edberg finished fourth last month. This fine bad weather golfer won't mind the forecast blustery conditions one iota and the early 100/1 on offer with the Sportsbook was more than fair, now clipped to 80/1.


Mike Norman: Back Rikard Karlberg @ 41.040/1

With very little to go on this week I'm going to take a chance on a player who not only performed well here last year but someone who has also been in decent form in the last month or so. Rikard Karlberg finished T9 12 months ago with his best round of the week coming on the Sunday, something that I always give a little bit of extra significance to. And since the middle of July this year he's finished in the top 10 at both the Scottish Open and the European Masters, that latter event being particularly eyecatching given what Steve says about Crans having a form link with this venue on the early evidence. I'm expecting this talented 28-year-old to give me a good run for my money.
