Consistent Bartosz Zmarzlik can get better of title-chasing pair
Tai Woffinden tends to struggle in Cardiff
BT Sport 1, 4.15pm
The Polish national anthem rang out for the first time at the British Grand Prix 12 months ago when Maciej Janowski rode to glory – and it could be another Pole celebrating in Cardiff.
Bartosz Zmarzlik, another super-consistent Pole, enjoyed himself in Wales last year winning four out of his seven races before failing to register in the final.
Third in Sweden two weeks ago – his best result of the year – and looking fast every time he takes to the shale for club side Vetlanda of late, Zmarzlik looks well worth a punt in the fifth round of racing in this year’s campaign.
Obviously home fans will be rooting for Tai Woffinden, the double world champion and current championship leader with an 11-point advantage over the rest of the field.
Woffy has won two of the four meetings in 2018 though has never won in Cardiff where his record is mixed.
His nearest challenger, Sweden’s Freddie Lindgren, has also never managed to top the podium in the Welsh capital. Indeed, neither man even made the semi-finals last July.
Janowski took the honours that day and arrives in the UK in seriously good form after beating Lindgren to top spot in Sweden two weeks ago.
1pt each-way 8-1 general
