Rebecca Long-Bailey has drifted out from 2/1 to 9/4 after announcing that she is running for the Labour leadership. Keir Starmer is the 8/11 red hot favourite.
"You would normally expect the odds to contract after Rebecca Long Bailey confirmed she will be standing, so we are slightly perplexed by the market’s behaviour but perhaps punters have been put off by her association with brand Jeremy Corbyn," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
