Lucy Kabuu is a great bet each way at 7/1 for the London Marathon tomorrow.  Don't sit through two hours, 17 minutes and 57 seconds of financial regret!

Great spot..... £1 each way invested!

<Does not compute>

Sorry, the BBC didn't mention anything about a race in their news report about the London Marathon yesterday.

(To be fair they did interview Scott Overall the day before, but if I wanted the main broadcaster to actually tell me the name of any single elite athlete racing tomorrow I'd still be waiting...)

Anyone got odds for me

will 2hrs 18 be good enough to beat keitany?

Possibly but not definitely, hence the each way wager.  Keitany is about 6/4, Kabuu is 7/1 and that is a huge difference in price which doesn't reflect their respective marathon results / potential.

Keitany has performed in 1 out of 3 of her marathons whilst Kabuu did brilliantly in her only one.

Great story so here it is again

He is pacesetting the other British Olympic hopefuls

Though as soon as his job is done I suppose he could just carry on?

Must be odd to be able to do that?

Pace a marathon and know you could carry on and still finish faster than most people ever born?

Finish a bit out of puff but nothing serious

I guess it's a good paid training run.

Just checked and Lucy Kabuu odds shortened to 5-1 on the site i use since your tip Moraghan....!
