Rory McLeod has climbed twelve places in the World Snooker rankings following his maiden triumph at the 2015 Ruhr Open.

The Leicester-based cueist has risen from 61 to 49 after picking up a the first ranking silverware of his career in Mulheim last weekend.

In addition, McLeod moves up to third place on the European Tour Order of Merit and sixth on the Grand Prix Order of Merit courtesy of the 25,000Euro top prize he secured.

China's Tian Pengfei, the man McLeod edged to the Ruhr Open title, climbs four places to 66, while beaten semi-finalists David Gilbert and Mike Dunn also climb further into the world's top 50.

Mark Selby remains at the summit of the rankings with a healthy lead over World Champion Stuart Bingham in second spot and followed by 2010 World Champion Neil Robertson.

Exiled Ronnie O'Sullivan currently occupies sixth spot, and it remains unclear as to when 'The Rocket' will return to professional ranking competition.

Former Crucible king Graeme Dott sits in the all-important 16th position with a slender cushion over Welsh ace Michael White, while the likes of Robert Milkins, Mark Davis and Ryan Day remain in close pursuit.

Shanghai Masters champion Kyren Wilson is enjoying a career-high ranking of 23, while Xiao Guodong leads the quest to break into the world's top 32.

The top 64 at the end of the season will retain their Tour Cards, with the battle to avoid relegation from the professional ranks beginning to hot up as messrs Ken Doherty, Oliver Lines, Liam Highfield and Robin Hull among the stars looking over their shoulders.

The next ranking tournament is Asian Tour Event One from October 19-23 in Haining, China.
