Scottish Open: Judd Trump and Luca Brecel cruise into second round

Judd Trump shrugged off his UK Championship disappointment by cruising through his opening match at the Scottish Open in Edinburgh.

Trump, who lost in the semi-finals to Ding Junhui in York, fired a 142, the highest break of the tournament so far, in a 4-0 win over amateur Sydney Wilson.

World champion Luca Brecel, who won the event in 2021, also whitewashed opponent Iulian Boiko 4-0 to join Trump in the final 64 of the competition.

Sam Craigie staged a great escape as he came from 3-0 down to beat Mark Williams 4-3, while there were also wins for Ding, Mark Selby and Kyren Wilson.

Defending champion Gary Wilson survived a scare as he edged out north-east rival Elliot Slessor 4-3 courtesy of a break of 90 in the decider.
