"Mr Cameron's front-runner status was underlined by a £200,000 bet on him being named leader next Tuesday, said by bookmaker William Hill to be the largest political wager ever taken. At odds of just 25-1 on, the mystery punter, who placed the bet at a Windsor shop, stands to win just £8,000 if he is proved right. William Hill cut the odds on a Cameron victory even further, to 66-1 on, after taking the bet, compared with 14-1 against for former front-runner Mr Davis to win."
Who could be the mystery bidder? Someone from Windsor Castle? We know HM Queen likes a flutter! Or maybe Windsor's millionaire MP Adam Afriye?
Mr Cameron's 66-1 on status comes after The Telegraph revealed that 65.4% of members had now voted.
