Dale relishing Trump challenge on home soil at the 2015 World Grand Prix

Home favourite Dominic Dale believes that fans can expect to see some "wonderful Snooker" during this week’s World Grand Prix in Llandudno.

Welshman Dale feels that having the top 32 players on the one-year list from last season's World Championship at the Venue Cymru can only result in a very successful inaugural event.

The ‘Spaceman’, who is currently ranked number 32 in the world after the Indian Open, gets his tournament underway against reigning Australian Open champion Judd Trump on Tuesday night and is relishing the chance to play at the new venue for the first time.

"The venue is absolutely fantastic. I haven’t played there before so I’m really looking forward to it," said Dale.

"It's great to actually play in North Wales. I haven't had the opportunity of going there since the qualifiers were held at Pontins, Prestatyn.

"You've got the top players in the sport in the event on merit – the top 32 on the money list from last season – so you’re going to see some wonderful Snooker played there, I'm sure," he added.

Dale's showdown with Trump will be the second game on table one this evening, following the conclusion of the all-Scottish clash between John Higgins and Graeme Dott.
