Thepchaiya Un-Nooh made three centuries as he cruised into the main draw for the English Open with a 4-0 whitewash of Jamie O’Neill.

The 36-year-old made breaks of 123, 82, 139 and 105 as he restricted his opponent to just 34 points.

Since reaching the World Open final in 2019, Thepchaiya has faded as a force and failed to progress beyond the fourth round at any event last season.
