BT Sport 2, 1pm Sunday

For the second race weekend in a row, a Marc Marquez crash late in qualifying allowed Maverick Vinales a shot at pole position that he didn't squander.

But while Marquez made up for his Saturday error at a rain-soaked Misano last time, the weather is expected to be hot and sunny in Aragon this time.

The three-time MotoGP world champion is certainly close enough to win, starting fifth, and it's hard to disagree with bookmakers' assessment that he is a slight odds-on favourite.

Jorge Lorenzo looks a good bet to lead the race early. The Spaniard, who qualified second, has made some spectacular starts this season, but tends to fall back into the pack.

That wasn't the case at Misano, where he was well clear before crashing out, but it could be back to the old story on a dry track.

Lorenzo also started second in Barcelona in a race won by his Ducati teammate Andrea Dovizioso. The Italian started seventh there, as he does in this race and at 12-1 Dovi looks value.
