Over 50% Of All Tory Leader Cash For Boris

ALTHOUGH his odds drifted out to 6/4 second favourite at one point, Boris Johnson has now been backed in to 8/11 favouritism (58%) with William Hill to be the next Tory leader, with Theresa May out to 7/4 (36%) second favourite.

'22.6% of all the bets we have taken for Tory leader are for Theresa May, who has attracted 21.2% of all the money staked, while 18.4% of all bets are for Boris – but they account for 50.2% of the money staked' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'Our turnover on the outcome of the leadership race is already approaching six figures.'We have seen a string of four figure bets for Boris,the largest for £2000, while the support for Theresa has slowed significantly and the biggest bet for her today was £454' 

ANGELA EAGLE is 11/8 (42%) favourite to succeed Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader with Hills who make Tom Watson 9/4 (30%) second favourite.
