    Judging by the way this lot are riding 7 minutes plus down on the break and failing fast it’ll soon be odds on they don’t make it by nightfall. What price is Dashing Dave Millar up at the front there?

    The bookies are guarding against Peter Sagan recording his fourth stage victory today, pricing the current Green Jersey holder at just 4/1 for the win. Sylvain Chavanel follows in the betting and is well backed at 14/1 ahead of Luis Leon Sanchez at 17/1.

    The big movers today according to leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com, include Pieter Weening, winner of a stage back in 2005 and part of yesterday’s initial breakaway, who has been backed from 200/1 into 50/1 in places. Samuel Dumoulin, close to victory a couple of times this year and a stage winner in previous tours, has also received support and is now 66/1 from 200/1.
