John Higgins - After 6 months in the wilderness, bounced back in sensational fashion in winning the UK Championship in an epic final against Mark Williams in December, as well as winning a PTC a few weeks beforehand. Masters not his strong point, with 6 R1 exits in the last 11 years but has won it twice.
Neil Robertson - World Champion, already a ranking winner this season as well as reaching the number-one spot in the world. Only managed two R1 wins in his Masters career, this will be his fifth appearance.
Ronnie O'Sullivan - May be outside the top-8 for the first time in ages, but loves this event especially being from London himself. 4 titles and 5 other finals in his career, already won two non-ranking events this season in the Premier League and Power Snooker so may view this event as another release from the pressures of the ranking events.
Mark Selby - Won in 2008, finalist in 2009 and won again in 2010, clearly able to bring his best for this tournament even though his form in the rest of the season may be patchy at best.
Who do you see as the most likely to take home the title ?
