Some each way thoughts

Completely forgot to make a post after PC5 and 6, so congrats to Damon Heta and Jim Williams, the latter especially denying Ricky Evans in a battle to see who would get a first senior bink. That's putting Williams in strong contention for a Grand Prix spot, and has an outside chance of the Matchplay. Kind of hard to project given we have so many Euro Tours before the cutoff for that, but he's in the running.

We've got a bit of a spate of Pro Tours now, with two this weekend, three the weekend after then two the weekend after that, and especially this week there's bound to be some interesting each way chances given the number of players that are not in Niedernhausen - if they're calling up the 30th player on the Challenge Tour list as a minimum, then the field could easily be wide open, although we haven't yet seen a list of players. So who do we potentially want?

Chris Dobey - his scoring in the last six months is third only behind van Gerwen and Price, and he's typically available at 50/1. What's not to like?

Martin Schindler - was on him at 150/1 last weekend and with Betfair's top four each way terms, secured a nice payout. He's been there or there abouts a lot of times, and if you read my "next new winners" post, it's surely just a matter of time before he goes all the way.

Josh Rock - also was 150/1 last weekend. Has had a red hot start statistically, only lost out to Schindler at the final hurdle before the each way payouts last time out. Already losing a bit of value, dropped to 150/1 from 200/1 in PC5, but will surely remain value for the next few.

Damon Heta - not someone I've bet for a while, but his scoring is a fair bit better than the general top 16 level, so if he's priced up outside of the top 10 runners in a full field, he's definitely worth a look.

Daryl Gurney - quietly returning to a bit of form, he's scoring closer to 95 than 90 in the last six months (albeit only just), overtaking Dolan who we were looking at each way a fair bit in 2021. He's not won in a while, so may well be priced in and around the 100/1 mark, which is worth a look.

Check Twitter before PC7 once I've had a look.
