Corbyn Cruising To Victory?

JEREMY CORBYN is 1/5 with William Hill to receive the most first preference votes in the Labour leadership contest - and he is 11/8 favourite with Hills to emerge as the new Party Leader.

Former favourite Andy Burnham's odds have been extended to 6/4 by Hills in the face of support for Corbyn, while Yvette Cooper is back in third place at 11/4, with Liz Kendall completely unfancied at 66/1.

'Jeremy Corbybn is now expected to go int the significant latter stages of the campaign as a clear favourite - having started out as a 200/1 no-hoper' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
