Taylor to rock Blackpool rivals again?

Darts fans will be packing their buckets and spades for the annual trip to Blackpool’s World Matchplay tournament, with Phil Taylor available at 7/4 with Victor Chandler to take this title for the 12th time in 18 years.

However, the Power has looked vulnerable in major tournaments this term and Gary Anderson is a tempting 6/1 to add this trophy to his Premier League crown.

World champion Adrian Lewis and last month’s UK Open hero James Wade are 9/1 and 8/1 respectively to take home the £100,000 first prize, while it is 13/8 that there is at least one nine-dart finish at the Winter Gardens.

Victor Chandler are offering 4/1 for all four opening-night favourites to oblige, which would mean seaside victories for Lewis, Terry Jenkins, Mark Webster and Vincent van der Voort.

Lewis takes on Kevin Painter and told Sky Sports Radio: “He’s going to be a tough opponent. I’ve heard he’s had laser eye surgery and hit a nine-darter as soon as he’d had it done, so obviously his confidence is going to be high.

“But if I can get straight out of the blocks and take the match to him I can turn him over. My form’s good and I’ve been putting a lot of hard work in since the UK Open in Bolton.

“It would be fantastic to win in Blackpool. For me it’s the second biggest tournament there is behind the World Championship. It’s my favourite event to play in, I think the crowd’s fantastic and it’s like a party atmosphere. It will be great.”
