Tony Drago safely progressed into the second round of qualifying for the Wuxi Classic after a 5-1 win over Sean O'Sullivan.

Drago will next face Adam Duffy to continue his attempt to make it into the final stages of the tournament.

Young Belgian prospect Luca Brecel also made it through to the second round in style, thrashing Daniel Wells 5-1.
