PIRATES promoter Danny Ford is hoping duo Danny King and Steve Worrall can show their class when competing in the British final on Saturday.

The pair secured a one-two during the Ben Fund Bonanza at Scunthorpe back in March – before elite level racing was shut down due to COVID-19.

This weekend’s showpiece event at Ipswich, initially planned as one of the government’s pilot test events for spectators, is now set to take place behind closed doors.

But Ford is looking forward to seeing two of his 2020 septet in competitive action, when Britain’s biggest domestic meeting is live streamed from Foxhall.

Ford told the Pirates website: “I think everyone is excited about the opportunity for senior level racing to return and there is a decent field being assembled as you would expect.

“Obviously Danny will be carrying home favourite status but I am sure that Stevie would like to try and turn the tables on him after the Ben Fund Bonanza result.”

Worrall, King and Pirates’ Aussie charger Josh MacDonald are due to take part in a behind-closed-doors challenge match at Belle Vue tonight.
