Snooker World Grand Prix: Judd Trump faces White test


Share this story

Judd Trump comes up against Michael White at the World Grand Prix on Tuesday and the world number three could do with going deep in the tournament as he seeks to hit top form ahead of the World Championship.

Trump is yet to get his hands on the biggest prize in snooker after bursting onto the scene back in 2011 as he reached the final at The Crucible.

The world number three has since managed just one Triple Crown title but he has been in form this season as he successfully defended his European Masters title before reaching the Shanghai final, with four further semi-final appearances on his record.

World number 28 White won the Paul Hunter Classic earlier this year to claim just a second career ranking title and also reached the last eight at the English Open and Champion of Champions event.

The Welshman was brushed aside 3-0 by Trump in the Champions League earlier this year however, and seemingly faces an uphill battle to emerge victorious in this Grand Prix showdown in Preston.

Trump is 1.30 to claim the win on Tuesday or 4.75 to win 4-0, while White is 3.30 to come out on top.

Trump is 8.50 to win the tournament outright as he seeks to claim the Grand Prix title for the second time in his career, having won the inaugural edition of the competition in 2015 before it became a ranking event.
