A few initial thoughts:
Cavendish not only deserves to win it but, unlike previous years, seems to have enough of a public profile that he may well do so.
There will be at least one golfer in the top three, or Ian Woosnam will scream and scream and scream until he's sick.
Cricket - England must be up for the team award, which suggests that individual honours may be less likely.
I'd like to see Mo Farah in the top three, as he's had a superb season. Andy Murray - save it until he wins a Grand Slam.
Overseas personality: while we'd all love to see Darren Lockyer get this, Novak Djokovic must be the front-runner, surely?
