Next Conservative Leader Odds: Mordaunt shortens to joint favourite with Sunak

Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt is a leading contender to become the next Conservative leader and replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.

The Minister for International Trade shortened from a general 8/1 in the next Prime Minister (PM) market to 5/1 following the resignation of Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid last night.

She is now 11/2 best price through oddschecker in the next Conservative leader market with Sunak at 7/2, although both are generally priced at 4/1.

Sunak is also battling Mordaunt for favouritism in the next PM market as he is as short as 5/2 with one bookmaker (29/5 best price) to replace Johnson as PM following his resignation as Chancellor.

The 42-year-old has taken the most bets on this market through oddschecker across the last 24 hours, with a quarter of all bets backing him to replace the current PM.
