John Higgins To Enhance His Fine Welsh Open Record In Cardiff
The Welsh Open Snooker is live on BBC Two this week as the great and good of the sport compete at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, with John Higgins and Neil Robertson the pick of our each-way bets in the Welsh capital...
- Ronnie O'Sullivan and John Higgins co-hold the record for most Welsh Open titles (four each)
- Higgins has reached two other finals and five other quarter-finals at the Welsh Open

It is reigning champion Ronnie O'Sullivan who is the bookmakers' 5/1 favourite (Coral.co.uk) to land a fifth title in Wales but it won't be easy as he is in the same first quarter of the draw as the man he beat in last year's final, Neil Robertson.
The Australian will be out for revenge as he bids to win the Welsh Open for a second time following his success in 2007. The 34-year-old actually beat O'Sullivan at the World Grand Prix in Preston recently and there have been signs of him hitting top form of late.
The 2010 World Champion won the Riga Masters and has made a couple of finals, which ensures he looks decent each-way value in this field (14/1 with Coral).
Higgins Going For Five
Also in the top-half of the draw is John Higgins, who co-holds the record for the most number of Welsh Open titles with O'Sullivan. The four-time champion won when the Welsh Open first moved from Newport to be held at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff in 2015 and he has a close affinity with this tournament as he has obviously won four titles, as well as reaching two other finals and five quarter-finals in 22 appearances.
Higgins has enjoyed a fine season, winning the China Championship and Champion of Champions, as well as finishing runner-up at the Scottish Open, where he defeated O'Sullivan and Judd Trump en route to the final, and the 41-year-old can carry the flag for the rejuvenated forty-somethings.
Higgins is in the second quarter of the draw with Barry Hawkins and Judd Trump, and the Scot is looking like decent value at 12/1 with Sky Bet.
In the bottom-half of the draw, UK Snooker championship winner, Mark Selby, is available at 6/1 and he is the stand-out name in a section that also includes Shaun Murphy and Ding Junhui, who finished runner-up at Newport in 2014.
