I expect Tuesday’s last sixteen match between two Englishman, Judd Trump and Joe Perry to be a high quality encounter considering we have two of the best break builders in the sport.

Judd Trump, the recent Northern Ireland Open Champion, arrived in York with the aura of a man ready to add to his one previous UK Championship in 2011.  Judd showed the required determination of a champion seeing off Dominic Dale in the second round.

Joe Perry is having a solid season in keeping with his long illustrious career and reaching the final of European Masters was the highlight thus far after ending last season breaking Mark Selby’s hold on the world title.

Judd Trump dominates the head to head 10-4 and on nine of them occasions he has won by two clear frames minimum.  It is fair to say that the vast majority of their previous matches have been over the shorter formats of the game.

Key Stats & Facts

  • Head 2 Head: Trump 10 – 4 Perry
  • World Ranking: Trump 5 – 19 Perry

Betting Odds :

  • Judd Trump – 2/5 Matchbook
  • Joe Perry – 44/19 Marathon Bet

The Verdict

I expect Judd Trump will prevail in comfortable fashion despite Joe Perry being the model professional who you expect a high standard of play from.

Taking the -2 Asian Frames handicap line @Bet365 gives our bet a real solid feel when you consider nine of Judd’s ten victories versus Joe have come by 2 frames or more in shorter formats.

At the last 16 stage you would now expect Judd to be raising the level of his play with his class and current confidence being the telling factor combine this with the longer format I expect Judd to win 6-2 6-3 or 6-4.
