28-1 Zagar value for podium place again in Grand Prix of Poland
Slovenian star has looked fast in recent weeks
Grand Prix of Poland
BT Sport 3, 6pm Saturday
Matej Zagar climbed on to the podium in Warsaw 12 months ago and it's worth backing him to be there again when the Speedway Grand Prix returns to the Polish capital.
The Slovenian star finished third behind Tai Woffinden last year and looked fast in his home grand prix two weeks ago.
Zagar delighted his home fans in Krsko by making it to the semis but had to settle for third place.
He looked fast again on Tuesday when he top-scored for Smederna in the opening round of the Swedish club campaign and he likes the Warsaw track. After all he won there, albeit in a weather-shortened GP, in 2015.
Having reached 13 finals in the past four seasons, Zagar is ultra-consistent and should give his backers a decent run.
Woffinden and Jason Doyle dispute favouritism though the Englishman didn’t even make the semis in Krsko despite two heat wins. Martin Vaculik, who went on to win the meet on his return to the GP circuit after a four-year absence, is 12-1.
An alternate might be Maciej Janowski, a home hero who has been eclipsing Woffy in Wroclaw colours this season and bagged 15 points on Monday night.
