Cruz Cunning Plan Doomed To Be Trumped?

TED CRUZ's plan to engineer defeat for rival Marco Rubio in the latter's home state of Florida Primary has seen the Cruz nomination odds cut by bookmakers William Hill from 16/1 (14%chance) to 8/1(11%).

'This sounds like a desperate last throw of the dice by Mr Cruz to make himself the last man standing against Donald Trump' said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'But we are sceptical about his chances of pulling it off'

WILLIAM HILL make Donald Trump red hot 1/4 (80% chance) favourite to win the up-coming Florida Primary, with Rubio 11/4; Cruz 20/1; Kasich 50/1.

Trump is 2/7 favourite (77% chance) to clinch the Republican nomination with Hills who also offer 5/1 Rubio; 8/1 Cruz; 16/1Kasich.

Hillary Clinton is 1/2 favourite (66%chance) to win the race to the White House, with Trump 9/4 (30%) second favourite. Hills also offer 16/1 Rubio; 25/1 Sanders; 28/1 Bloomberg; 50/1 Cruz; 50/1 Kasich.

If Trump becomes President, William Hill client John Mappin from Cornwall, England, will collect £75,000. (Contact details on request)
