The Prime Minister will need to get her plans past the two Houses of Parliament first, though – as it’s it 4/1 that she’s vetoed.

We also price up the likelihood of the UK border being closed this year (25/1), the pound reaching a record high in 2017 (10/1), and Article 50 not to be triggered by the end of March (7/4).

“But it’s great news about the Pound – I sorted my holiday money out for the Cheltenham Festival last week, and am already a winner.”
