Corbyn Creeps Up On Burnham

JEREMY CORBYN has been cut from 13/8 to 6/4 to win the Labour leadership contest - putting him just a shade of odds behind 11/8 favourite Andy Burnham.

'An £8 bet on Corbyn would now return £20 including the stake money, while the same on Burnham will get you £19, so there is almost nothing between them - which is extraordinary, as Corbyn opened up as a 200/1 chance originally!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

LABOUR LEADER....11/8 Burnham; 6/4 Corbyn; 11/4 Cooper; 50/1 Kendall.
