The LPGA season reaches its climax in Naples, Florida and there are a host of players battling it out for the top honours, led by China's Shanshan Feng.

Feng is just 6-1 for a repeat of her success in 2013 and it is no surprise that she is fancied to be involved in the shake-up after claiming victories in the last two weeks at the Japan Classic and the Blue Bay Championship in her homeland.

However, it has been a gruelling schedule and there could be value elsewhere in a deep field.

Kettering's Charley Hull defends her title and is a 40-1 chance after finishing 12th in Japan last time out, but 2014 champion Lydia Ko could be the value selection.

Ko has been playing solidly with six top-20 finishes in her last seven starts and she boasts some decent course form - after winning three years ago she was seventh in 2015 and tenth in last year's tournament.

The New Zealander looks a good each-way price at 16-1 - she had last week off and should be well-rested - and Australian Minjee Lee is also capable of making a big impression.

Lee is another player who has tasted relative success at the 6,556 yards, par 72 track, having finished 16th last year and seventh the year before.

She performed excellently to finish fifth in the Japan Classic and although she has not claimed a title this year, Lee has claimed ten top-ten finishes so she could be an each-way factor at 33-1.
