Gerwyn Price to win – 11/4
The top of the draw looks stacked with reigning world champion Michael Smith, newly crowned Premier League champion Michael van Gerwyn and Rob Cross all contending for a finals spot.
With that in mind, it’s no. 2 seed Gerwyn Price who takes the eye in the bottom half of the draw.
‘The Iceman’ was the best player in the Premier League over the 16 weeks of regular season action and looks back to very near his blistering best.
Price faces Dutch-American Jules van Dongen in the first round, which he should navigate with ease. Next up, are potential showdowns with Luke Humphries, Peter Wright or Nathan Aspinall. None of which should trouble the Welshman.
Then it’s just a matter of a final shootout against Smith or van Gerwyn for the title and the £20,000 prize.
