Betfair Exchange: Next Conservative leader
Rishi Sunak: 4/6 (was 11/10 on Thursday)
Boris Johnson: 3/1 (was 30/1 on Thursday)
Penny Mordaunt: 9/2
Ben Wallace: 39/1
Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, “Odds on Boris Johnson to make a sensational return to No.10 continue to tumble with the former Prime Minister now second-favourite at 3/1, having been 30/1 on Thursday, to be the next Tory leader.
“Johnson is believed to be privately urging MPs to back him in his bid to reclaim his role as Tory leader, despite resigning just three months ago.
“Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak is the 8/11 odds-on favourite to succeed Truss, who he lost out to in the Tory leadership last month, with Penny Mordaunt 9/2.”
