I guess this competition might be down to luck or politics, dunno which.

In the past couple of years the winner has been "known" well before the final night of competition. Russia was heavily backed before the contestants even arrived last year, and China was a decent go a couple of weeks into the comp 2yrs ago.
Puerto Rico is 12s into 5/4 and the comp has only just begun, so i'd say the market is a reaction to the trends of previous years.

Thanks Lonnegan, Ive been laying her and I thought it was about time to try to find out what I was doing.

Lots of google hits for her but I cant see any reason why shes well known. Maybe in the Spanish speaking world.

To be honest Russia last year was a gradual backing over the course of a couple of weeks whereas Puerto Rico I believe was 12/1 with PP who probably took an early tenner and cut her to fave - the rest of the books copied - quite happy with my 33/40 France and 80 Barbados at this stage

I wondered this about why the favourite is so short?

In theory there will be at least 50 out of the 100 who are all extremely attractive. they've all got lovely figures etc so why even in a 50 horse race is one of them about 7/4? She's no doubt good looking but aren't 50 of the others?

Lou - are you going to suggest there's no 'manipulations' in this one too..? ;)

I think there's a lot of politics - wouldn't touch the market with a bargepole.

I doubt too many forumites would turf the other 50 out for farting either..............
