1.30pm: Jason Heaver v Gordon Mathers – Over 7.5 180s

Two evenly matched players here which should lead to a tight game and if we go a long way as expected we’ll see a lot of 180s in this game. Both Jason Heaver and Gordon Mathers have shown good maximum hitting form on the Tour this year and they can continue this on the big stage. The price for these two to hit eight or more 180s in a game I expect to go all the way is very attractive.

7pm: Martijn Kleermaker v John Michael – Kleermaker Most 180s, High Checkout & Win

The big Dutchman Martijn Kleermaker will be looking to make up for lost time here having missed out on making his debut last year due to a positive Covid test. He has had a good year on Tour and can dominate this game against the Greek no.1 John ,Michael who is yet to win a match on the Alexandra Place stage in 3 attempts. We’ve a fair price for Kleermaker to have the Most 180s, highest Checkout and to Win the Match in a game where he should have too much for his opponent.

8pm: Florian Hempel v Martin Schindler – Schindler to Win 3-2

This battle of the Germans between Florian Hempel and Martin Schindler should be one of the games of the 1st round between two players who are coming off very impressive years on tour. Both rank in the top 30 in their average this year and the winner will give Dimitri van den Bergh plenty of trouble in the 2nd round. I think Schindler’s extra big stage experience will prove vital and he can just get over the line 3-2.

9pm: Steve Beaton v Fallon Sherrock – Sherrock Most 180s and Win Match

The Queen of the Palace makes this possibly the most anticipated of all the 1st round games. Steve Beaton makes his 31st consecutive World Championship appearance but this is a draw all the players would have wanted to avoid. Sherrock showed sensational form at the Grand Slam of Darts recently and if she can reach that level here she can get the win. Her 180 hitting was very impressive in that tournament so the price on Sherrock to hit most 180s and Win looks the play in a match to savour.
