Oliver Fisher looks quite a catch in the top British and Irish market
Pepperell being shown too much respect
Oliver Fisher has fond memories of the Czech Republic – it was where he became a European Tour champion in 2011 – and the Essex boy can give a solid account of himself in the same country over the next four days.
Fisher has produced some decent golf in his last three tournaments, finishing 28th in the Irish Open, 32nd in the Scottish Open and 39th in the European Open, and he was an impressive runner-up in the Qatar Masters in February.
The 29-year-old looks a big price in the Czech Masters top Great Britain and Ireland market at 25-1, especially with Paddy Power, who are offering each-way terms of a fifth the odds, five places.
Fisher, a former prodigy who was expected to become a world superstar after his exploits as a junior, has been dismissed too easily in a weak section.
The in-form and popular Eddie Pepperell is favourite, but these days he prefers shorter tracks where he can leave his troublesome driver in the bag. Fisher is better value.

1pt each-way 25-1 Paddy Power
