Jess is around 1.02 on Betfair to win the World Athletics Championships heptathlon this lunchtime. Her previous form in SPOTY when winning gold at a major championships is excellent, having been third twice and second once.
This year is even more impressive in that she has made her comeback after giving birth to Reggie last year. With recent emphasis on women in sport she must attract a load of votes on the big night in December. It’s difficult to see her out of the top three and an each way bet at these prices looks sensible. She may shorten further later on when clinching gold.
At such short prices for the heptathlon punters may consider laying off their Jess SPOTY liabilities just in case disaster was to strike in the 800m finale.
