NAUSORI Club player Jiten Prasad will be out to maintain his number one ranking when he participates in the A Grade division of the second National Snooker Rankings Championship at the Lautoka Club next weekend.

Jiten is in top form having represented Fiji at the Oceania Championship in Albury, New South Wales, Australia last month.

He was Fiji's best performer in the competition reaching the elimination stage of the men's open snooker event.

Jiten went down narrowly to Queenslander Steven Donohoe 3-2 missing a chance to qualify for the top 16 playoffs.

Two other representatives, Praneel Singh and Deepak Jai Ram failed to proceed further from the group stage.

They were placed fifth in their groups.

Singh recorded highest breaks of 41 and 45.

Ram and Singh played in the six reds event finishing at the bottom of their respective groups.

Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji secretary Raymond Reddy said the trio would be the ones to look out for next week.

Reddy said formal dress code policy would apply for the two-day tournament.

"For each grade, a minimum of 24 entries will enable pool play," he said.

"However if the number is less then matches will proceed on a knockout format. The top two players from each of the eight pools will qualify for the eliminations."

Veteran Viliame Umu, Mahen Deo, Ismail Wali, Yogendra Prasad, Nitesh Chand, David Reddy, Rimal Narayan and Suresh Chauhan are the other title contenders in the A Grade. Sahil Prasad, Ravi Narayan, Hazel Naidu and Raman Lal are the seeded players for the B Grade.
