English duo Ali Carter and Judd Trump will meet in the final of the World Grand Prix on Sunday.
Former world number two Carter eased his way into his first ranking event final in over two years after he whitewashed Xiao Guodong 6-0 in the last four on Friday, while he also saw off the likes of David Gilbert and Mark Allen earlier in the competition.
The 39-year-old should also feel the benefit of the extra rest he has had in the build-up to Sunday’s showpiece, as while he eased past Xiao on Friday, Trump had to wait an extra 24 hours for his semi-final clash with Barry Hawkins, eventually prevailing 6-5.
However, the Juddernaut is arguably one of the form players on the tour at the moment as he will be looking to win his third title of the season on Sunday, following on from his successes at the Northern Ireland Open and the Masters.
Trump also sits 14 places above Carter in the world rankings, while he holds the better head-to-head record between the pair as he has won 11 of their 21 previous meetings.
However, Carter did win their most recent showdown in the 2018 Championship League, while he also emerged victorious in arguably their most high-profile meeting, prevailing 13-12 in the second round of the 2012 World Championship at the Crucible.
Trump, who is a previous winner of the World Grand Prix following his victory over Ronnie O’Sullivan in the 2015 showpiece, is priced at 1.30 to become the first multiple winner of the event, while Carter is available at 3.40 to claim what would be his first ranking title since his success at the 2016 World Open.
