Form

The favourite:
Wayne Maxwell – Coming off a victory at Mallala, the defending champion will carry that form into Sydney Motorsport Park, and if Yamaha can go the distance across the two races each day, Maxwell will be right there with a shot at victory.

The threat:
Troy Herfoss – Herfoss split wins with guest Honda teammate Aiden Wagner last time the series was in Sydney and should be strong over race distance once again this weekend. Will it be enough to beat the Yamahas? It’s going to be tight.

The darkhorse:
Cru Halliday – Last time at SMP Halliday was unable to convert his pole into race wins, but he would have learnt from that and now has more time on the YZF-R1M. Arm-pump hampered him at Mallala, but so far, so good in Sydney with the Friday pole position.
