Andrea Iannone looks each-way value on improved Suzuki

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.

Recommendation
A Iannone
1pt each-way 18-1 bet365
