Phil Taylor will be chasing a fifth world title and a record first prize of pounds 45,000 when he begins his latest defence at the Red Band World Championship at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet, Essex, today.

Taylor, 36, won the official Embassy World Darts title in 1990 and 1992 and then broke away with 15 other top players to form the World Darts Council. Taylor has since won the WDC version of the world title for the past two years. Twenty-four players will compete for the title.
