Grand Prix star Chris Harris says being the British Final underdog suits him as he prepares to chase title No.4 at Wolverhampton tonight.

The Cornishman lines up against the likes of world champ Tai Woffinden, the in-form Scott Nicholls and Team Great Britain colleagues Craig Cook, Danny King, Richie Worrall, Lewis Bridger and Ben Barker.

Harris does not have the pressure of chasing the massive prize of a British SGP wild card, available to the highest finishing non-SGP regular. But he would love to get his title back.

The Coventry rider knows he just needs to be in the final to have a shot at the top prize. But he admits back-to-back Grand Prix winner Woffinden and seven-time champ Nicholls start as favourites.

He said: “We’ll go there and see what I can do. We know who the favourite will be and I can just go there and enjoy the racing. Tai and Scott will be favourites.

“Monmore Green is a track I enjoy, I’ve had some success on it and hopefully I can come away with the trophy again.

“It all comes down to that last heat. It’s all about getting into the vital heat 22 and then it’s all about those four laps. As long as I’m in there, anything can happen.”
