Some professional snooker action makes a return to get the month of June off to a flying start. This is a non-ranking event which takes place from June 1st to 11th.

This fixture will be from Group 2 of the tournament. In it, the current world number one Judd Trump is expected to make relatively light work of David Grace.

Trump should ease back into action

Judd Trump, who has already won six ranking tournaments this season, is the 5/2 outright favourite to win the Snooker Championship* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 15:44 GMT on Sunday, June 1st 2020).

This is the first of his round-robin matches in the group stage, before going on to meet Elliot Slessor and Daniel Wells. You would expect Trump to breeze through these kinds of challenges.

In the previous edition of the Snooker Championship, which was under a totally different format, Trump won his group and then a Winners’ Group of seven before surprisingly falling at the semi-final stage against eventual winner Scott Donaldson.

Our betting prediction:
Trump 3-1 correct score

(odds taken 21:17 GMT, Tuesday 26th May)

It is not like he’s going to be coming in cold. Players will have been training at home no doubt, so expect the high standards of Trump to be there. He has just been unplayable for most of the season.

Matches in the Championship Snooker tournament are the best of five, so the correct score market is narrow. There is a 6/5 poke at the 3-0 whitewash dished out by Trump* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 15:44 GMT on Sunday, June 1st 2020). That is the market favourite.


Can Grace shine in tough opener?

David Grace, who turned pro in 2008 made a semi final run at the 2015 UK Championship. That has been, head and shoulders, the best ever effort in a ranking event in his career.

That having been said he did reach the quarter-finals of this year’s Gibraltar Open but didn’t get past the second round in any other ranking entry.

This is just a tough game for Grace no matter which way you try and cut it. He will be looking for his first professional win over Trump.
