Luca Brecel is the highest-ranked player in action on day two of the 2018 Gibraltar Open, while crowd favourite Jimmy White will also be on display at the Victoria Stadium on Saturday.

The 17th ranking event of the World Snooker season continues on Saturday, with the remaining players looking to snap up the eight remaining places in Finals day.

Ranked 13th in the world, Brecel is the only player from inside the top 16 to take centre stage on day two. The Bullet is targeting a second ranking title of the campaign following his breakthrough victory at the China Championship last August.

The first obstacle he must overcome is left-handed Londoner Martin O'Donnell, who recently reached the semi-finals of the Shootout.

Michael Georgiou was the winner at the shot-clock event. The world number 58 is in action against Liam Highfield, as former World champion Peter Ebdon plays Craig Steadman.

Crowd favourite Jimmy White is likely to put bottoms on seats on Saturday. The Whirlwind takes on Christopher Keogan, while Zhou Yuelong and Zhang Anda lock horns in an all-Chinese battle.

Along with Zhou, there are six other members of the top 32 on display at the Victoria Stadium and aiming to push for a late surge towards the elite top 16.

Those include Riga Masters champion Ryan Day and three-time ranking event winner Ricky Walden, who play Xu Si and Alfie Burden respectively, as Joe Perry faces Adam Duffy.

Elsewhere, Paul Hunter Classic winner Michael White, who reached the final of this event in 2015, takes on Oliver Brown and former German Masters champion Anthony Hamilton locks horns with Ashley Hugill, while Michael Holt plays Brandon Sargeant.

Play at the Victoria Stadium in Gibraltar breaks off at 8.30am GMT on Saturday, with all matches to be contested over the best of seven frames.
