Judd Trump in for a party at Ally Pally

Ryan can have his day against Ding Junhui

Welsh ace Ryan Day is an accomplished breakbuilder

First-round matches

D Junhui v R Day 
BBC2 & Eurosport 2, 1pm Monday
Day two of Alexandra Palace action sets up an intriguing afternoon clash between Ding Junhui and Ryan Day. Should Ding play anywhere near his best he is the most likely winner, but that is far from certain to happen. 

The Chinese sensation won the World Open in September but since then has suffered a string of early exits. 

Immediately after his triumph Ding was beaten by Michael White in the second round of the English Open and after that he was dumped out of the International Open at the same stage by Oliver Lines.

Anthony Hamilton then put paid to Ding's chance in the first round of the Champion of Champions event.

The Masters is a bigger event than those and the hope for Ding's chances is that he puts more into this event than he did for others on tour but it's worth remembering the Chinese potter was beaten in the first round of the prestigious UK Championship by Leo Fernandez.

Either way, Day is a quality cueman and has been in decent nick for sometime. Having finally landed a ranking event last year, the Welshman has the belief to perform in big events against top players, and at 6-4 he should be backed to come through. 

Recommendation
R Day
1pt 31-20 Betfair


The Masters

Tournament preview


J Trump v L Wenbo 
BBC2 & Eurosport 2, 7pm Monday
Judd Trump has never been past the semi-finals of the Masters and has been dumped out in the opening round in three of his last four visits to Ally Pally, but he can put that right with a commanding victory against Liang Wenbo. 

Trump has spells where he looks as if he is ready to become the dominating force in snooker and will then chuck in a stinker and fade away.

However, 2017 saw the Ace win the Players Championship and European Masters as well as making the final of the Welsh and Gibraltar Opens and the Shanghai Masters. 

That's hardly a shabby record and it looks even better when you compare it to Wenbo, who made just one semi-final last year.

Trump has the ability and scoring power to rattle off frames in quick succession and he could enjoy a party at the Palace.
