Portugal will witness another intriguing battle in the 125cc class on 13th April, with the competition practically inseparable in the early going.

One of the more experienced riders in the closely-fought 125cc category thus far, Simone Corsi leads the way after his first victory of the year in Jerez.

The Jack&Jones WRB man -like Pedrosa in MotoGP and Pasini in 250cc- holds an advantage of just a handful of points over his nearest rival, in this case Grizzly Gas Kiefer Racing's Stefan Bradl.

Corsi can also expect stiff competition in Portugal from third placed team-mate Nico Terol, who currently lies third in the standings after his first World Championship podium in Spain.

Polaris World's Bradley Smith and reigning 125cc World Champion Gabor Talmacsi, who has been the recipient of various mechanical difficulties over the course of his opening two title-defending races, will also be likely to feature as key protagonists at round three with mixed fortunes thus far in 2008.
