This tournament has been positioned just after a major so it is very likely to produce an upset. Said that the top players take Home Nations tournaments very seriously, but after a very competitive two weeks, some might be forgiven for not being able to follow up here with the same level of performances. This is something we need to consider especially for the finalists, even though Trump and Robertson should be able to progress quite comfortably at the beginning of this event. But the mental fatigue will be something that might kick in later on for them.
Our suggestion is to look for those players that have had an early exit at the UK Championship. They will be a lot more motivated to bounce back immediately, and one player that we should consider closely is Allen. Since snooker has been back earlier this year, his form has been excellent especially when winning the Champion of Champions. The Northern Irishman has won this tournament in 2018 and has lost in last year’s semifinal so surely has to be considered as one of the potential main protagonists here. He will start with the most comfortable first-round draws facing Jimmy White.
Another stronger candidate to consider is also Stephen Maguire, who will have an easy start. Last year’s runner up Jack Lisowski should also do well as he has been in good form recently, although Zhou Yuelong makes more appeals. The 22-year-old is continuing to improve fast and should face Allen in the third round in what is expected to be a cracking affair.
Ronnie O’Sullivan can never be written off, but there is little value at this price. He is likely to face Trump in the semifinal and looked too out of shape when losing to Ursenbacher in the UK Championship. He might also go out in the best-of-seven against one outsider, so stay away from him this week.
