Politics Specials Betting By Graham Sharpe

Three Runner Labour Leader Race

Bookmakers William Hill say the betting suggests there are only three contenders who can win the Labour Leadership race, and they make Andy Burnham 8/11 favourite, ahead of 5/2 second favourite Liz Kendall, with Yvetter Cooper 7/2 third favourite.

Hills also offer prices for three outsiders - 33/1 chance Mary Creagh, while both Harriet Harman and Jeremy Corbyn are 80/1 outsiders.

'All the serious money has been for the three front-runners, and it seems this is set to be a three horse race' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

**Hills offer 2/1 that Labour will end up with female leader and female deputy, but 11/4 that both will be male.
