How have the runners and riders emerged out of conference week?
Ladbrokes have joined William Hill in opening a market on the race, with the following odds:
William Hill re-opened their online coupon today, only for it to have closed again by this evening, but you can still bet by phone.
Hilary Benn is a surprise favourite at 5/2, even though he is not (yet, anyway) standing, and Miliband is on ridiculously low odds at 10/1 for a man who has actually ruled himself out. Meanwhile, Hain has slipped to 3/1 along with Johnson, and Harman has plummeted to 14/1 with Cruddas now breathing down her neck at 16/1.
With the bookies all over the place there should be chances to hedge. Just be sure to donate a share of profits to good causes.
