Monday betting overview
Four days of action from the Lee Valley VeloPark come to an end on Monday where all eyes will be on Dame Laura Kenny as she targets more Commonwealth Games gold for England at 5.07pm in the women’s 10km scratch race.
Kenny, who was not placed in Sunday’s 25km points race, had some of the best moments of her decorated career on the track in London, where she won the first two of her five Olympic gold medals in 2012 as well as the world scratch title in 2016.
Ahead of Kenny’s likely swansong at the Commonwealth Games, the female speedsters are battling it out in the keirin, which starts at 2:02 p.m., and Canadian Olympic sprint champion Kelsey Mitchell is the favorite to do better than when she wins the silver in the sprint and team sprint competitions at the Birmingham Games.
Luck is always required on the track, especially in the rough and tumble keirin, but this race still looks likely to turn into a battle between Mitchell, fellow Canadian Lauriane Genest and Ellesse Andrews, the 22-year-old New Zealander who claimed two sprint gold medals in Lee Valley. Oddly, Andrews was also denied silver in the team pursuit because she was unable to attend the medal ceremony.
At the awards, it’s worth siding with Andrews as she bids for a third gold medal. The Kiwi beat Mitchell 2-0 in the sprint final and she should be bursting with confidence heading into an event in which she won silver ahead of the two Canadians at Tokyo 2020.
