The Swill Brook Lane venue should see a bumper crowd as the field battles for a prize pot of more than £4,000.

Gary Timlin triumphed in the first qualifying session at St Joseph’s, Chorley, last month and he is in the line up again as he seeks to add further points towards qualification for the finals day.

Reigning champion Ian Penzer of Preston and the highly fancied Scott Taylor are also in the running in a highly competitive field.
