Coral English Open day 4 tips

The exciting Coral English Open has already thrown up plenty of thrills and spills during its opening three days of action at EventCity in Manchester, and that’s set to continue into Thursday.

In this inaugural ranking event added to an already jam-packed snooker schedule, as part of the new Home Nations Series, the likes of Mark Allen and John Higgins will feature in what should be another dramatic day.

So, ahead of the latest baize battles in both the third and fourth rounds, Coral outline English Open day 4 tips for punters to back during the promising match-ups…

Highfield and Day to go to deciding frame

Welsh potter Ryan Day faces Swindon’s Liam Highfield, with the latter cueist entering on the back of a sublime shock win over world number one and reigning Crucible king Mark Selby in the previous round.

In what was a truly hard-fought encounter, the 25-year-old edged a deciding frame. Next up is the experienced Dynamite Day, a player who the younger potter has not beaten in two previous meetings. Though another final frame shootout can be backed to occur here at 23/10. Day also came through a thrilling deciding frame win over Scot Stephen Maguire to reach this stage.

Allen to beat Bingtao 4-1

Following a comfortable 4-1 opening success over Mark King, Northern Ireland break builder Allen will hold plenty of confidence going into his latest match-up against Yan Bingtao.

The Pistol, a three-time ranking event winner, dropped just a single frame in his maiden outing and is 3/1 to overcome 16-year-old Chinese potter Bingtao with another 4-1 result in Manchester.

Higgins to win three straight frames against Patrick

Higgins should easily see off the threat of Patrick.

Veteran Scottish potter John Higgins will take to the baize again after a routine victory over Scott Donaldson. The four-time Crucible victor rallied to a 4-1 success and will next face compatriot and inexperienced cueist Fraser Patrick.

Higgins is obviously the overwhelming favourite to prevail, but the Wizard of Wishaw can be backed at a promising 12/5 to win a maximum of three consecutive frames during proceedings.

Williams to lead Preece 3-1 after four frames

Williams was the first player into the last 32 of the English Open.

Two-time world champion Mark Williams tackles fellow Welshman Ian Preece in his next contest and is 7/5 to hold a 3-1 lead this time out after four frames played.

The vastly experienced Welsh Potting Machine, who was the first player to book his place in the last 32, overcame Ian Burns with an impressive 4-1 victory in the previous round.
