How rapidly West Ham star rises among requests Ladbrokes answer

You have asked Ladbrokes for all kinds of weird and whacky requests and the bookmakers have obliged by pricing them up.

Anything ranging from the probability 65-year-old business tycoon Richard Branson sets foot on the moon before he’s 100 (100/1), to the likelihood great British heavyweight boxing hope Anthony Joshua lands a world title by 2020, at 4/6, have been given odds.

Below we highlight three more from a fruity batch of 27 answered customer requests currently live on

Football: Reece Oxford to gain a full international cap for England before the end of 2016 @ 8/1

West Ham’s latest prodigal son or, the “boy who has everything” according to manager Slaven Bilic, belied his 16 years in helping the Hammers record a famous triumph at Arsenal on day one of the Premier League.

Such composure and positional discipline is rare in a boy so young and given he occupies a defensive midfield role, a position not yet sewn up for the Three Lions, this is genuinely plausible.

Swimming: Freddie Iron, Enduroman Channel Swim Time: 14-16 hours @ 2/1

Inspired by his cancer-surviving Dad, 25-year-old Freddie Iron is aptly named as he takes on the 300-mile triathlon, which includes the swim across the channel, in a bid to raise £20k for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Other times are available at different prices for the heroic Londoner.

Politics: Any Labour MP to defect to the Lib Dems before the end of 2015 @ 5/1

These are tumultuous times for the Labour party as the hugely divided camps for the vacant leadership contest attest.

With hard-line lefty Jeremy Corbyn as short as 1/3 to succeed Ed Miliband by the autumn, it’s very easy to see this bet landing as a protest to the appointment by more mainstream Labour MPs.
