Scotland's David Millar will look to defend his Commonwealth Games time trial title in what will be his last ever race on home roads in Glasgow.

England's Alex Dowsett is also among the favourites who will tackle the 40km time trial circuit (10am), which sees riders pass through Glasgow’s East End as well as the countryside and Joanna Rowsell will compete in the women's race, which is 10km shorter.

Olympic silver medallist Louis Smith will seek to add to his team gold when he looks to dominate the pommel horse final on Thursday (3pm).

But he will face stiff competition from his England teammate Max Whitlock, who scored higher than Smith during qualification.

On the track, Danny Talbot will look to build on his impressive performance in the 200m heats – he qualified third fastest into Thursday semi-finals (6.25pm) and Shara Proctor, will go for gold in the women’s long jump (7.15pm).
