Judd Trump looked far from convincing in his initial Group matches and looks vulnerable in what is going to be a really tough group. He heads the betting and is followed by David Gilbert, Barry Hawkins and Ryan Day. This looks like the group of the tournament so far with the three outsiders in the group each showing good form in Phase 1 of the tournament.
Ryan Day was particularly impressive in seeing off Kyren Wilson to win his Group and could cause a shock or two in the group if carrying on his form. However, David Gilbert looked the sharpest of the lot and he has a good record against Judd Trump having beaten him on the last 2 occasions.
The other group for the day features the in-form Gary Wilson, Luca Brecel, Mark Joyce and Ashley Carty. Gary Wilson showed arguably the form of the tournament in his initial group, dropping just one frame and rattling in four centuries along the way.
Elsewhere, Mark Joyce performed to high standard in his groups and can potentially cause an upset in one of the matches with the Luca Brecel clash looking most likely.
