Higgins Can Shine In UK Champs

Live on Brit Eurosport 2: Sat 13.00: The Daily Star’s Kevin Francis previews the upcoming UK Snooker Champs which break off this weekend.

SHAMED star of the baize John Higgins will be a man on a mission as he continues his comeback from a six-month ban imposed following match-fixing allegations. He says he wants to win the event for the fourth time for his father John who is battling against cancer. “I’d love to win it for him, of course I would,” said a determined Higgins.

The Scottish ace returned to action two weeks ago after his ban and won the Euro Players’ Tour Championship in Germany, beating Shaun Murphy 4-2 in the final. He’s looking sharp and gets my vote at a cracking each-way chance of 9/1 with Skybet and .

Ronnie O’Sullivan, not surprisingly, is favourite at a best-priced 7/2 with Stan James. ‘The Rocket’ powered to his ninth Premier League title in 14 years last week and those odds are looking rather tempting for the reigning champion, who will be trying to win the title for a fifth time. Incidentally, O’Sullivan’s Premier League win came over in-form Shaun Murphy and he is a good-priced 12/1 each-way shot with Stan James and Coral.

Recommended Bet: I really do fancy an investment on John Higgins at those tempting each-way odds of 9/1 with Skybet and .

Happy punting
