Andrea Dovizioso should make a bold bid for Losail repeat
BT Sport 2, 5pm Sunday
Bookmakers are struggling to split surprise pole-sitter Maverick Vinales and defending MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez in the market for the Qatar Grand Prix.
But a better bet might be the man who splits the pair on the front row of the grid, Andrea Dovizioso.
Dovi's Ducati team spent much of winter testing working on their race pace rather than going for headline lap times, and that should stand the Italian in good stead as he bids to repeat last year's victory at Losail.
Competition has been fierce through practice and one second covered the top 14 qualifying times, so racecraft is likely to be a deciding factor in the race.
Dovizioso has shown more than once that he can match Marquez in a head-to-head scrap, and he could be value in a race which sometimes turns into a tactical affair.
