Chaz Davies (Ducati) kick-started his World Superbike title bid by winning Race Two in Thailand, while defending champion Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki) struggled to finish fourth.

Davies, who finished third in Race One, produced a dominant display to fend off challenges from Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes (both Yamaha), who finished second and third respectively.

Rea looked uncomfortable on track throughout, but still climbed above Marco Melandri (Ducati) to take the championship lead.

The Northern Irishman grabbed pole position in a record time before coasting to Race One victory, but was off the pace on Sunday as he finished over six seconds adrift.

Rea (69 points) leads Melandri (67) in the standings. Xavi Fores (Ducati) is third (60) with Davies (57) climbing into fourth.
