Form guide

The favourite:
Wayne Maxwell – After winning six races from six one year ago, it’s difficult to look past the defending Superbike champion this weekend. He may be with a new team in YRT with YMI and on the 2015 YZF-R1M this time around, but testing went to plan and he is on target for a breakthrough win on the new bike.

The threat:
Troy Herfoss – As the title leader following his Sydney win, Herfoss ranks right up there with Maxwell as a favourite for the overall honours come Sunday. Don’t be surprised to see him go back-to-back in terms of round wins, but he will have to out-race Maxwell to do so.

The darkhorse:
Cru Halliday – Just like at Sydney’s opener, Halliday is the darkhorse of the front-runners. He is blazingly quick and came all so close to an overall podium at round one. A win isn’t far out of his reach at this point.
