Leading 6-2 going into the evening session, Trump continued the pattern of the morning to lead 12-4.

Two of the other quarter-finals have surprising leaders, with Barry Hawkins and Stuart Bingham 5-3 up against Neil Robertson and Ronnie O’Sullivan, respectively.

O’Sullivan was fortunate to escape a possible seven-point sanction as he placed his chalk on the table to line up a shot but referee Terry Camilleri did not call the foul as he went 3-2 ahead.

Bingham, though, recovered to win three successive frames, with the match continuing this  afternoon.

Shaun Murphy leads surprise package Anthony McGill 9-7.
