Trouble is, to get that fast in the wet you need to be at the limits of grip. I'm sure that to get that fast that you generally have to end up exceeding the limits at some point which I would rather avoid :-) I don't have a set of track day fairings so I'd much rather keep a little bit in reserve! If the feedback from the tyre is good as Jools suggest then I'm sure I will be fine.
Fingers crossed its dry and I don't get to experience a wet track though I appreciate that it would be a good learning experience on the Ducati. I remember clearly the last wet track day I did at Cadwell. There was a small river across the start/finish straight on a drying track that I hit when WOT on the RG. I must have been banked slightly as the rear stepped out at what must have been >100 mph and the resultant moment nearly resulted in soiled leathers. The guy behind said he was thinking how impressive it looked just before he did the same thing!
