Olympic hero Mo Farah attempts his first crack at a 26.2mile London Marathon on Sunday. The Brit is third favourite at 11/2 to win the race behind Tsegaye Kebede at 9/2 and Wilson Kipsang at 7/4.
Last year’s race was won by Ethiopian Kebede but Kenyan world record holder Kipsang is seen as the front runner for 2014. He set the benchmark time of two hours three minutes and 23 seconds in Berlin and is seen as the main threat to Emmanuel Mutai’s London course record of two hours four minutes and 40 seconds set in 2011.
Farah is seen as the only realistic British hope in the race with Chris Thompson and Scott Overall both at 200/1 to cross the line first on Sunday.
