Wont't be surprised if Checa takes the double this weekend. That ducati seems to be working well arounf the Island, and Checa of course.
Very impressed with Lascorz' pace so he may go well.
I predict Rea will be on the podium despite that heavy crash which almost put him out of contention.
Melandri i have for a top 5 in both races, in top 3 but drops back due to shoulder.
Eugene's times in testing wernt jaw-dropping but i believe he was working on a race setup, and rightly so. He could well be the dark horse. top 5 finish.
Haslam has the ability but not the machinery.
Guintoli could well do what Checa did last year with his first ride on the ducati.. looks to have a good pace.
Biaggi will struggle here, top 7 though.
Fabrizio will be inside the top 4 in the early part of the race but the suzuki will lack rear grip at the end of the race.
Its not looking good for Toseland, im sure his recent results reflect on the year to come.. but i wonder if it might have been different if he signed
