Fresh off the back of his Welsh Open win, Ding Junhui is in decent form and represents good value at 9/1 (Boylesports) to win the Haikou World Open in his home country of China.
He does share a draw half with John Higgins, 10/1 shot with Skybet, and also Neil Roberston but he has the ability to do the business in front of a home crowd. Current Masters Champion Neil Robertson is 8/1 with Stan James.
In the other half, Judd Trump is the 7/1 tournament fav with Stan James and should go well and his main challenger, due to the withdrawl of Ronnie O’Sullivan, is Mark Williams. The Welshman is 10/1 with BetVictor and the finalist from this half of the draw is likely to be one of these two.
A Trump/Ding final is 20′s with Skybet.
