HEREFORDSHIRE'S Chaz Davies will be hoping for another good weekend when the latest round in the World Superbike Championship heads to Thailand this weekend.

Davies, from Kinsham, near Presteigne, opened the new season with a couple of second place finishes behind Northern Irish rival,Jonathan Rea.

The Ducati rider had his most successful campaign last year, winning 11 races, but could only finish third in the standings.

Davies is aiming to make the eventual step up to MotoGP and hopes he can achieve that goal as early as next season.
