Corbyn Odds Shorten Yet Again

JEREMY CORBYN's Labour leadership odds have shortened yet again, and the former 200/1 outsider is now 1/ 4 favourite (stake £4 for profit of £1) with William Hill, who cut him from 2/7, and now also offer 7/2 Andy Burnham; 10/1 Yvette Cooper; 100/1 Liz Kendall.

'Mr Corbyn remains the only contender being seriously backed to win this race' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'We're resigned to a six figure payout if he does.'

Hills have also cut their odds for Mr Corbyn to win 50% or more of First Preference Votes, from 8/11 to 4/6. He is 11/10 not to do so.
