Penny Strong makes a quick reappearance having lost in the final of last weeks Grand Prix against clubmate Billy Jackson. She’s shown solid form this year and won her first event. She has a 60% win record and may take all the beating.

Jonathan West won his opening event and may well give Strong most to do. He meets both opponents for the first time today. He’ll be boosted by his opening success and I fancy he could be the answer today.

Local man Sam Ashton failed to make the final of his opening event, failing to win at all with his red bowls. Can he make amends today?

Opportunity knocks in today’s heat with one of the 3 players destined to open their event winning account having all drawn a blank thus far.

Wayne Willgress lost in the final of his only heat so far. He won 44% of his matches throughout last year and could be the man to beat today.

Neil Smith won 43% of his matches last season but failed to make the final on his first appearance this year. He does however have the better head to head record with Willgress so far.

Kevin Rands hasn’t got going yet this year but did have the best match winning % last season of the 3 players at 50% and certainly holds a live chance today.
