They’re Under Starter’s Orders

William Hill is sadly not running a book on tomorrow’s Somali presidential election. So for what it’s worth, here are tomorrow’s runners

  • 3/1jf Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed – went down heavily a couple of years back but is out to prove he knows the course better than anyone
  • 3/1jf Nur Adde – runs in the same Abgaal colours as Sheikh Sharif which may make him a late nonrunner
  • 11/1 Abdullahi Yusuf’s liver – from Irish donor to warlord. Already a proven stayer. Certain to go the distance
  • 15/1 A Pirate – experience in rigging suggests he could be the dark horse come election time
  • 100/1 Michele Ballarin – runners from American stables tend to fair poorly but has the advantage of not running in clan colours
