Robertson has an opportunity against busy O'Sullivan

Rocket may have bigger prize on his mind

Ronnie O'Sullivan could be focusing on the Home Nations events this season
1 of 1

Day four
ITV4, 1pm & 7pm Thursday

Two of the finest players in snooker history enter the 188Bet Champion of Champions fray on day four, but there may be grounds for finding a way to oppose green-baize heavyweights Ronnie O'Sullivan and John Higgins.

They are each 1-2 to progress to the evening group decider, but with O'Sullivan possibly focusing on trying to win £1m for winning all four Home Nations tournaments – the Rocket won the English Open series-opener last month – he will need to preserve energy for the three remaining legs and that may afford an upset opportunity for his first-round opponent Neil Robertson.

Higgins is defending his title in Coventry this week. The Scot is playing well but is no certainty to start well against compatriot Anthony McGill, who is develop­ing greater consistency this season.

Recommendation
N Robertson +1.5 games
1pt 10-11 Betfair, Paddy Power
