Sunday betting preview

The 2006 Commonwealth Games gave Mark Cavendish one of the first successes of his glittering career when the Manx Missile took gold on the Melbourne track.

Fast forward 16 and Cavendish is aiming for road race gold at Birmingham 2022. Bookmakers have rated the 37-year-old as a 9-5 favourite.

In theory, the 160km course, which includes ten laps of a lightly rolling course around Warwick, gives Cav an excellent chance, but the disparity in the strength of different nations compared to WorldTour level racing may make races chaotic. Multiple attacks are likely, especially from stronger teams who will want to minimize any chance of finishing a group.

The England team had to settle for silver in both time trials in midweek, but Fred Wright looks to have an excellent chance of moving on to gold in the road race.

Wright had an outstanding Tour de France, earning four top-ten finishes, including second on Stage 13. He was a feature of the breakaways throughout the race, always a great indicator of the current form of the Tour de France. a runner, but is tactically versatile as announced by his tenth place in the sprint on the Champs-Elysées.

England time trial silver medalist Anna Henderson hopes she can do better in the women’s road race as well, although she may once again have to play second fiddle to Australian Grace Brown.

Brown, who won gold in the time trial, finished second overall and won a stage on the June Women’s Tour v. The 30-year-old can count on a strong Australian team to help her win double Commonwealth gold.

England missed out on a place in Sunday’s final of the women’s T20 cricket event at Edgbaston (5pm) after being beaten by India on Saturday.

The Indians, who were 12-5 to beat the tournament hosts, will face Australia or New Zealand, who will meet in the second semi-final, for gold. England play for bronze at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
