Oxford have emerged as clear favourites to win the Boat Race after more than 70% of bets were placed on the Dark Blues, according to bookmaker William Hill.

Spokesman Joe Crilly said: "Oxford are certainly the best backed crew as of yet, although that was very much the case at this stage of proceedings last year.

"Last year, however, we took nearly £40,000 on the day of the race and Cambridge became best backed by the time the race started. Maybe history will repeat itself this time around."

Organisers are trying to stop any repeat of last year when the annual race was stopped by Trenton Oldfield, who swam into the path of the crews.

The race's Executive Director, David Searle, said: "We are taking additional measures this year and have reviewed all of our actions last year in detail.

"The Boat Race course is four and a quarter miles long so we have eight and a half miles of riverbank to manage and monitor.

"What I would say to anybody thinking of disrupting the race is that it's unbelievably dangerous. You risk injuring yourself, the crews and the other people following the race.

"Nobody wants that to happen. This is just a sporting event."
