The unlimited finishing positions market is fascinating for the Masters - essentially we need to ensure Ogilvy makes the cut then we're a long way to securing a profit here as he must finish 39th or better to put us into positive territory.
Ogilvy's credentials are strong as you'd expect - 10 professional wins, 3 of which were WGC events plus his US Open in 2006...clearly he can cut it at the very top. In his 5 attempts at Augusta he's made the cut 5 times - finishes of 16/24/39/15/27 are solid if unspectacular - however that's what we're looking for here, basically someone who's got the ability to finish in a solid position and secure us a profit.
Since injuring his hand a freak accident in Hawaii, Ogilvy has missed just one cut from 6 attempts and finished inside the top 30 on 4 occasions. Personally I don't think the Australian is backable in the outright market at a best priced 70/1, however there's profit to be made from a positive performance in this spread betting format in my opinion and anything inside 39th position would be good enough. RESULT: T4, 34 points profit
