Lanky the Giraffe is the hot favourite to win the Mascot race on T20 finals day according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have chalked up the Lancashire mascot and two time previous winner as their clear 3/1 favourite in the big race. Harry the Hawk is the next of the teams represented at the final at 9/1 from Leicestershire's Charlie the Fox at 9/1.

Despite holding a huge chance in the cricket Somerset's Stumpy the Dragon is a rank 16/1 outsider in the race.

Alex Donohue, cricket betting expert at Ladbrokes said: "Lanky's got form in the book and he's the mascot to beat. Harry & Charlie aren't without chances and Somerset fans will be hoping their teams' chances are better than their mascot's."
