  • Second Round: Best of 5 sets, players must start and finish all legs on a double/bullseye

Danny Noppert (7/4) v Nathan Aspinall (4/9)

Head-to-head: 1-1
2019 Meetings: 0-0
PDC Titles this season: 0-2
Career PDC Titles: 1-3

Nathan Aspinall's star is rising fast this season and while the favourites' tag often means nothing in this tournament, you'd have to expect him to reach another major quarter-final tonight.

The UK Open champion, who also won the televised US Darts Masters, has worked so hard this year to ensure his fabulous run to the World Championship semi-finals was not to be in vain, and he showed no sign of slowing down when dropping just one leg to sweep past Vincent van der Voort on Monday night.

The Stockport man averaged 92 which is obviously highly impressive in a double-start format and I think he'll have too much for Danny Noppert, who put Daryl Gurney to the sword for five missed set darts.

Prediction: 1-3

Dave Chisnall (2/5) v Stephen Bunting (2/1)

Head-to-head: 9-8
2019 Meetings: 2-0
PDC Titles this season: 3-0
Career Senior PDC Titles: 16-2

When a player as gifted as Dave Chisnall goes so long without winning a big TV title, you begin to think it'll be almost impossible to predict when (if) he finally does it.

However I have attempted it this week purely for the reasons that this is his first major tournament since reaching two PDC finals in September while he hasn't been in such great title-winning form for a long time.

That European Tour triumph in front of a crowd in Denmark back in June will have done him the world of good and, more importantly, Monday night's victory over Gerwyn Price showed real mental strength.

Chizzy was playing so much better than the in-form Welshman but somehow it was his opponent was throwing for the match in a deciding leg. It was a prime opportunity for him to succumb to the pressure but thankfully he held his nerve and now faces Stephen Bunting.

Not that I'm underestimating the Bullet, who reminded us of his talents at the World Grand Prix, but I've got to stick with his fellow St Helens thrower.

Prediction: 3-1

Rob Cross (4/6) v Glen Durrant (11/10)

Head-to-head: 0-0
2019 Meetings: 0-0
PDC Titles this season: 1-2
Career PDC Titles: 9-2

Given that this is such a tough match to call, it might prove worthwhile just to go with the 'outsider'.

In this case it's Glen Durrant although he'll have to start much better than he did on his debut appearance in this event on Monday night, when he gifted the first set to Krzysztof Ratajski 3-0 before pulling off a superb comeback.

The three-time BDO world champion, who has won two titles since earning his Tour Card back in January and also enjoyed a fairytale run to the World Matchplay semi-finals, will now feel settled with the tournament's format and has the comfort of knowing his opponent has also only ever won a single match here!

World Matchplay champion Rob Cross broke his duck at the third attempt in a hard-fought victory over Mensur Suljovic but expect this one to go the distance and be about who holds their nerve at the end.

Prediction: 2-3

Peter Wright (2/7) v Jermaine Wattimena (13/5)

Head-to-head: 10-3
2019 Meetings: 1-2
PDC Titles this season: 3-0
Career PDC Titles: 26-0

I wasn't alone in predicting a relatively easy night's work for Peter Wright on Monday and he duly obliged with a 2-0 victory over Max Hopp.

Last year's runner-up has been in superb form during the second half of the season including three titles in a row prior to reaching the quarter-finals of the World Matchplay while recently he's made four semi-finals on the circuit.

Snakebite wasn't at his very best against the young German by any means but he didn't have to be and I'd expect him to raise the bar when he faces Jermaine Wattimena, who was particularly impressive in the final set of his victory over Adrian Lewis.

Prediction: 3-1
