Mercury Prize

The latest odds for this year's Mercury Prize are in - and it looks as though there's no clear frontrunner.

William Hill have published their latest odds for the music gong, with the bookmaker refusing to push any of the shortlisted acts out in front.

Jamie xx is marginally ahead on 7/2 but the producer is closely followed by Benjamin Clementine and Wolf Alice - both on 7/1.

Somewhat curiously, Florence & The Machine are trailing the pack - William Hill place the flamboyant pop act at 20/1 for 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'.

Final shortlist:
Aphex Twin - 'SYRO'
Wolf Alice - 'My Love Is Cool'
Roisin Murphy - 'Hairless Toys'
C Duncan - 'Architect'
Eska - 'Eska'
Florence + The Machine - 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'
Ghostpoet - 'Shedding Skin'
Benjamin Clementine - 'At Least For Now'
Jamie xx - 'In Colour'
SOAK - 'Before We Forgot How To Dream'
Gaz Coombes - 'Matador'
Slaves - 'Are You Satisfied'

The winner of the Mercury Prize will be announced this Friday (November 20th) - coverage kicks off at 9.30pm, BBC Four.
