Judd Trump

Masters champion Judd Trump beat Ali Carter 10-6 at Cheltenham Racecourse to win the World Grand Prix.

World number five Trump led 6-3 on the back of breaks of 113 and 132.

But Carter, whose last rankings title was the 2016 World Open, fought back to 7-6 before Trump won three straight frames to seal victory.

It is a third title of the season for Trump, who also beat Ronnie O’Sullivan to win the Northern Ireland Open in November.

“Ali pushed me the whole way so I really had to be at my best,” said Trump, who has now passed £500,000 in prize money in a season for the first time.

“It’s down to sheer hard work, practice and having my brother around,” added Trump. “He’s making me practise more than ever before and when you’re winning you don’t really want to let up.”
