Chaz Davies is looking to keep up his winning feeling heading to Assen after taking Ducati to its first World Superbike win since 2012 at Motorland Aragon.

The Welshman rode the 1199 Panigale bike - introduced in 2013 - to a long-awaited maiden victory at Aragon after prevailing in an intense tussle with Jonathan Rea, a breakthrough result that lifts him to third in the overall standings.

Heading straight to Assen for round four of the season, though Davies has an indifferent Superbike record around the Dutch circuit, he is hoping the momentum from Aragon will see him up front again.

"Assen's enjoyable to ride but it's always a challenge to get the bike to work well around the entire track, with some quite different sections," he said. "I've never been able to make the best of it in Superbike, and my results have been fairly average, while in Supersport I took a win.

"My aim this weekend, and every weekend, is to be on the podium, and then we'll try to pick up wins where we can. I feel that we've learned a lot over the last couple of weekends, even when things have not been going so well, and I think that this will be important this weekend; we know where we stand in terms the chassis and that is particularly relevant at Assen I think."
