Same entries for this as the Wuxi, EXCEPT......there are 7 missing players from the top 24, instead of 2 (not counting Hendry). If these are all top 16 players, then Carter & Higginson (as in Wuxi) as well as Ebdon, Dale, Davis, Hawkins & Perry will all be given a top 16 seeding (assuming they've all entered).
Annoyingly, WSA have named some (not all) of the Q School top-up players.......Gunnell, Jones, Patrick & Wild (it's now common knowledge these are the 4 for Wuxi as well, even though they're un-named in the draw), as well as Allan Taylor, Justin Astley and 2 more named as #7 & #8. Also, it looks like Floyd Ziegler is a doubt and a space is left in the draw for either him or a #9 from Q School.
It seems that Jordan Brown, Ashley Wright & Ryan Causton have turned down invites, and that Duane Jones, despite being listed as an entrant in the European Championships, has accepted both invites(!)
