Vive LE France?

MARINE LE PEN has been heavily backed to win the French Presidential Election with bookmakers William Hill, and is now 6/4 second favourite to do so so, just behind Alain Juppe, who had been odds-on favourite, but has now drifted to Even money.

Hills also offer 5/1 Francois Filon; 8/1 Nicolas Sarkozy; 16/1 Emmanuel Macron; 28/1 Manuel Valls; 33/1 Francois Hillande.

'Having been hammered by political punters backing Jeremy Corbyn at 200/1 to be Labour leader, Donald Trump at 150/1 to be US President, Brexit and a Tory General Election victory both at 6/1, we're taking no chances this time round and making sure we keep Marine Le Pen's as short as possible' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
