Froome The Bookie's Favourite

Chris Froome continues his march towards the Tour de France title after a good ride on Stage 4. The Team Sky rider and General Classification contender is priced as 8/11 favourite with William Hill.

Nairo Quintana also avoided trouble on the cobbles and remains second-favourite at 12/5.

Alberto Contador and Vincenzo Nibali have lengthened in price to 10/1 and 11/1 respectively. 

"Froome looks powerful and consistent so far in the Tour and while he rides so solidly and stays out of trouble, it looks a Herculean task for anyone to beat him," said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
