What to do?

Still procrastinating on how to approach tomorrow's 10 Mile Frank Duffy race in the park. I've religiously followed my marathon training plan for eight weeks now so it should be a good test of my progress. My last race was a half-marathon in baking heat shortly after a return from a four week lay-off where I posted my slowest ever race mile split times.
I'm thinking 06:40-45 average mile splits are realistic. However, I do not want to over do it so will aim for 06:49 and if I still feel fresh in the last two miles I will put the hammer down. There's a record entry of 6,500 this year and there will be predicted race time zones at the start. I guess people will ignore this as they generally do.
