IT'S been a tough tournament so far at Wentworth with the likes of Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald and Paul Lawrie already on their way home.

Here Milesey offers up his best Saturday selections.

Back Anders Hansen to beat Pablo Larrazabal 4u @ 2.1 (10.50am)

Starting Saturday from six off the pace, these two plausible winners are exactly the types one looks for as a Moving Day trade. Both are proven winners, fairly frequent European Tour contenders and available at huge odds but, when it comes to course form, Hansen is miles in front.

If Larrazabal is to make serious headway today he will need to record a personal best around Wentworth. In 14 rounds here he's only made par three times and never bettered 70. Alternatively, Hansen has won this event twice previously and is well set for an eighth top-25 finish.

Back Jason Levermore to beat Edoardo Molinari 2u @ 3.75 (11.45am)

The fact there are 1356 places between these two in the world rankings does not mean victory for this very short-priced favourite is assured by any means. Having made only one top-20 in the last 14 months, broken 70 only five times this season and never bettered 39th at Wentworth, Molinari is hardly the type to bank on, even if his opponent lacks any pedigree.

I freely admit Jason Levermore is not a name that has caught my attention before as his only main tour appearances have been in this event, courtesy of regional qualifiers. What we do know is he made the cut in 2011 and will lack absolutely nothing in terms of incentive over what could be a career-changing weekend.

Back Shane Lowry to beat Greg Havret 5u @ 1.96 (12.25pm)

There is a vast gulf between my expectations for these two over the weekend. While Havret does have the odd piece of world-class form in his record he hasn't been competitive for a long time and generally suffers around this layout.

In his last 10 visits, 38th place in 2008 is the only time he's made the top 60. It will be a huge shock if the Frenchman wins this title, whereas Lowry is on my halfway trading shortlist. He was in fair form at the World Match Play last week and is a better player, more accustomed to world-class company, than when fourth here two years ago.

Back Simon Khan to beat Lee Westwood 2u @ 3.5 (12.35pm)

There is no such thing as a certainty over 18 holes so while Westwood has rock-solid claims for winning this title he is worth taking on at very short odds against a course specialist. Khan's Wentworth stats are among the best in the entire field, winning the title in 2010, finishing runner-up in 2006 and registering six top-30 finishes. Having started the tournament well again there's no reason why Simon can't match strides with Westwood and hang around in the top 10.
