CHINA CHAMPIONSHIP SNOOKER 2017

The second ranking event of the season took place in Guangzhou (August 16-22) as John Higgins aimed to defend his Evergrande China Championship title.

Last year's inaugural edition, which saw Higgins defeat Stuart Bingham in the final, was an invitational but this time ranking points were on the line, with the likes of Mark Selby, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump and Shaun Murphy among the star-studded field.

World champion Mark Selby is 3/1 favourite to win the China Championship with Sky Bet while Ronnie O'Sullivan is next in the running at 6/1. However, Sky Bet have enhanced the Rocket's price to 8/1.

Judd Trump is 15/2 as he looks to rediscover form having only managed to score 27 points in total during a 5-0 thumping to Sam Craigie in the World Open qualifiers last week while defending champion John Higgins is 8/1.

Ding Junhui will be fancied by many to triumph on home soil at 9/1 while the other big names include Barry Hawkins (10/1), Neil Robertson (14/1), Shaun Murphy (20/1) and Marco Fu (28/1).
