WATCH: UK Championship video preview and free betting tips

Richard Mann and Gareth Jones discuss the main talking points ahead of snooker's UK Championship at York.

Ronnie O'Sullivan's quest for an unprecedented eighth UK Championship triumph comes under the microscope following his recent defeat at the hands of Judd Trump in the Northern Ireland Open final.

The team pay tribute to Trump's own recent domination of the sport as he bids to become the first player since Mark Williams in 2003 to hold all three Triple Crown events at the same time and further establish himself as the number one player in the world.

Last year's runner-up Mark Allen is another contender attracting plenty of attention while Richard wonders whether John Higgins has another win in him following a couple of near misses of late.
