PHIL TAYLOR, with a 112-dart average, continued his incredible run of form at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast last night.

The 15-time world champion powered his way to a scintillating 8-4 victory over Raymond van Barneveld and is now 11-10 (from 11-8) favourite with William Hill for the McCoy’s Premier League.

Gary Anderson, the defending champion, returned to somewhere near his best by beating James Wade 8-5. The Flying Scotsman is now the 4-1 joint second favourite to retain his title.

World champion Adrian Lewis battled back to draw 7-7 with Andy Hamilton. Lewis, who has drawn his last two matches, has been pushed out from 7-2 to 4-1.

Kevin Painter caused a minor upset by beating the Aussie Simon Whitlock 8-3. The win didn’t cause too much of a stir in William Hill’s trading department with bookies leaving him unchanged at 28-1 for the Premier League.

Company spokesman Tony Kenny said: ‘There seems to be nothing The Power can’t do with a set of darts. Every week he seems to bring something new to the oche and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go odds-on after next week’s visit to Exeter.”
