Bookkeeper William Hill has placed Allford Hall Monaghan Morris’ (AHMM's) Westminster Academy in London as this year’s favourite to win the RIBA Stirling Prize.

Less than a week before the big night, William Hill has changed its odds and placed AHMM’s school ahead of the previous favourite, Denton Corker Marshall’s Manchester Civil Justice Centre.

The academy now has odds of 3/1; Denton Corker Marshall’s Civil Justice Centre is second with odds of 7/2; and Zaha Hadid’s Nordpark Cable Railway in Austria is third at 4/1.

The winner will be announced on Saturday 11 October from Liverpool’s BT Arena and Convention Centre, designed by previous Stirling Prize-winner Wilkinson Eyre.

The odds for all six shortlisted projects are as follows:

• Westminster Academy by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (3/1).

• Manchester Civil Justice Centre by Denton Corker Marshall (7/2).

• Nordpark Cable Railway by Zaha Hadid Architects (4/1).

• Bijlmer Station, Amsterdam, by Grimshaw/Arcadis Architecten (9/2).

• Royal Festival Hall, London, by Allies and Morrison (5/1).

• Accordia, Cambridge, by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios/Alison Brooks Architects/Maccreanor Lavington Architects (5/1).

The Stirling Prize winner will be decided by this year’s judges: Eva Jiricna of Eva Jiricna Architects; Gordon Murray of Gordon Murray + Alan Dunlop Architects; Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects; Kieran Long, editor of the AJ; and Diarmuid Gavin, garden designer.
