Solid Carrington can lord it over Walker

Welshman may be overrated after ousting Selby in China

Stuart Carrington hails from the snooker hotspot of Grimsby

Qualifying day three
From 9.30am, Thursday

Lee Walker did well to upset Mark Selby and reach the last 16 of the World Open last week, but the Welshman may struggle to thwart Stuart Carrington over the best of 11 frames in their International Champion­ship qualifier in Preston on Thursday.

Carrington, a 4-2 winner over Walker in India in 2015, is making steady progress and becoming a pretty decent match-player with experience and Walker, 41, may struggle to dominate in terms of table time.

Carring­­ton is one of the latest in a long line of fine performers from Grimsby and the 27-year-old looks backable at 8-13.

Rory McLeod is a difficult player to assess but the Northamptonshire cueman could be a shade overrated for his clash with Ross Muir.

Scot Muir is a bit of an under­achiever but, aged just 21, there is plenty of time for him to make his mark. It will be a surprise if he is tonked at the Guild Hall and he could have enough to avenge a 4-2 loss to McLeod in India last month.
