Round One draws to a close at the 2019 World Matchplay on Monday, and we’ve picked out a value treble to be backed.
The opening weekend witnessed five seeds suffer early exits by the seaside, with two ties already having been settled in sudden death.
Peter Wright, the 2017 runner-up, looks to pick up from where he left off in a week to remember last week when he takes on fellow crowd favourite Vincent van der Voort in one of four tasty ties on Monday.
Two-time major champion Daryl Gurney gets his latest Winter Gardens campaign underway with a clash against Ricky Evans – one of seven exciting debutants in this year’s competition.
One of the most closely-matched ties of the opening round kicks off the night’s action as 14th seed Jonny Clayton takes on former World Youth champion Keegan Brown.
Another contest in which the bookmakers struggle to separate the two players sees Australian number one Simon Whitlock take on Scottish star John Henderson.
Monday’s Order of Play
Jonny Clayton v Keegan Brown
Simon Whitlock v John Henderson
Daryl Gurney v Ricky Evans
Peter Wright v Vincent van der Voort
