Rally Italia Sardegna: betting preview, tip & TV details
Kris Meeke could convert his speed into Sardinia victory
BT Sport 3, 6pm Thursday
Ott Tanak is favourite to make it three wins in a row with victory in this week's Rally Italia Sardegna.
This Estonian is second in the table, two points adrift of defending champion Sebastien Ogier, but the Estonian has been the man to beat for most of the season.
Tanak has happy memories of Sardinia, where he scored his first WRC victory in 2017.
Just ten points cover the top three in the championship at the halfway point of the season, and Tanak's title rivals Ogier and Thierry Neuville both have multiple wins in the event.
Only those three drivers have won rallies this season but the roll of honour could have been a lot longer had the year not been so full of drama.
Several other drivers have been in winning positions only to drop out of contention because of mechanical trouble or their own errors.
The erratic Kris Meeke is yet to record a top-three finish for Toyota this season but the Northern Irishman was well on course for the podium in Portugal last time before he binned it on the final stage.
At the prices it might just be worth taking a chance that Meeke can hold it together this week.
