Commonwealth Games tonight
7 units Azizulhasni Awang @ $2.25
This was a choice between Awang and Perkins. Perkins has never proved himself in the Keirin but Awang has. Awang was the silver medalist in the world championships. No one was going to beat Hoy, but he came close to it.
Perkins is a top quality sprinter and probably favourite for the men's sprint, but Keirin, you have to go for the Malaysian who has proven himself to be very good in this discipline. He's won a few gold medals and he's performed well and the 22 year old is continuing to impress. Perkins has been improving in the Keirin, but you need to specialise in this to win and Awang specialises in it.
The Malaysian cycling team is continuing to grow under John Beasley. After Tisin's performance yesterday in the time trial, Beasley has the Malaysian program spot on. If Awang is in form, he won't lose this and will give Malaysia their first gold medal on the track.
The pocket rocket does it. Perfect sprint - bonus of being the smallest in the field.
