Denton Corker Marshall's Manchester Civil Justice Centre in Spinningfields is second favourite for the UK's most prestigious architectural award, the Stirling Prize, according to bookmaker William Hill.

The CJC is rated at 7/2 odds, followed by superstar architect Zaha Hadid's Nordpark Cable Railway in Austria, which has odds of 4/1. The favourite, William Hill says, is Allford Hall Monaghan Morris' Westminster Academy at the Naim Dangoor Centre in London, with odds of 3/1.

The bookmaker has Grimshaw and Arcadis' Bijlmer Arena Station at 9/2. Allies and Morrison's Royal Festival Hall renovation in London, and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios Alison, Brooks Architects and Maccreanor Lavington's Accordia housing scheme in Cambridge are placed at 5/1 odds of collecting the prize.

The official winner will be announced on 11 October when the live televised awards is due to be held in Liverpool.
