Trump In Cruz Control As Rubio On Ropes

TED CRUZ has emerged as the most serious challenge to Donald Trump's chances of winning the Republican nomination, as his odds have tumbled from 8/1 (11%) to 3/1(25%) with William Hill to do so, as Marco Rubio's chances have back-pedalled rapidly from 5/1(16%) to 12/1 (8%).

And Hills have cut Cruz from 50/1 to 12/1 to become President, with Rubio out to 25/1 from 16/1.

Donald Trump remains odds-on favourite with William Hill to win the Republican nomination but his price has eased from 2/7 (stake 7 for profit of 2; 78%) to 1/2 (67%).

Hillary Clinton remains favourite to be Democrat nominee but her odds have lengthened from 1/33 (stake 33 for profit of 1), to 1/20.
