IN-FORM Chatteris snooker ace Joe Perry has high hopes of reaching the quarter-finals of the World Championships for the second time in his career.

He has been drawn against Stuart Bingham in the second round, a player he beat comfortably in the Welsh Open in February.

Perry swept aside Graeme Dott in the first round, winning 10-7.

He won the first frame of Wednesday's session with a break of 104 to go 6-4 ahead and notched a 132 on the way to victory. This was the highest break of the tournament so far and Perry's third century of the match.
