FIJI'S number one snooker player Jiten Prasad is the favourite for the Fiji Bitter-sponsored first National Rankings Championship in Suva this weekend.

The Nausori Club player will face stiff competition from Viliame Umu, Yogendra Prasad, Deepak Jai Ram, Nitesh Chand and Mahen Deo in the A Grade. Sahil Prasad will be the player to beat in the B Grade.

The youngster finished as the top player in the second tier competition last year. Billiards and Snooker Association secretary Praneel Singh said the draws for the tournament would be finalised today. Singh said three venues would be utilised.

"Fiji Club will be the main host," he said.

"Matches will also be played at Merchants Club and Defence Club. Already 21 players have registered in the A Grade. In the B Grade there are 28 players."
