Andrea Iannone looks each-way value on improved Suzuki
Spanish Grand Prix favourite Marc Marquez starts only fifth
Spanish Grand Prix
BT Sport 2, 1pm Sunday
Marc Marquez is odds-on to win the Spanish Grand Prix and for once the Spanish marvel looks worth taking on.
The four-time world champion has won only once at Jerez - a poor record by his standards - in 2014 and was disappointed to qualify fifth.
Cal Crutchlow took his first pole position since 2016. The satellite Honda rider set two laps quick enough for pole and ended up a quarter of a second clear of the field.
The Briton led the championship after his win in Argentina but dropped to fourth in the standings after crashing out in Texas last time.
A further two-tenths of a second covered the next eight riders so it could be a closer affair than bookmakers anticipate.
It's 16-1 bar Marquez, Crutchlow and Dani Pedrosa, who starts second despite a broken wrist, so there is value to be found.
Andrea Iannone is interesting at 18-1. Suzuki are looking much stronger this year than last, and Iannone finished a fine third in Texas last time.
Feisty racer Iannone starts seventh but could have better race pace than several riders starting in front of him to judge from practice pace.
