Wright looks ahead to European Championship defence: "It would be great if I could retain my title"
Wright had a poor time in Leicester at the World Grand Prix, where he lost to Rob Cross in the opening round.
"Obviously it was disappointing to lose in the first round last week," Wright admitted. "But fair play to Rob, he played great to beat me.
"But that's gone now and I'm glad we have a short turnaround to the European Championship.
"Last year this tournament was great for me personally, I averaged well over 100 in all of my games so it will go down as one of my best tournament performances."
First up will be the tricky German, Florian Hempel and he is under no illusion at the task ahead.
"It would be great if I could retain my title, but I know I've got a tough first round draw against Florian, who will be looking to show what he can do on the big stage."
