I know I've talked about it a lot but UK would be a good example. Once you saw that they put some effort in for once, you could back her in all markets with impunity. With that advantage I suspect the only challenge is having the patience to wait for an opportunity.

UK is being matched at 34 anyway, so you could cash in now Fig Grin

Had to have a big play on Moldova in-play, it just stood out among all the drab tunelessness of the evening. When the girls changed their dresses in an instant it reminded me of two past ESC winners which were also upbeat and with the girls having an instant dress change - UK 1981, Latvia 2002. I wonder how far Moldova would have gone in a year without the upbeat wacky slot being taken by Francesco and his ape, and with a second half draw. In fact with Italy, Poland and Armenia to accommodate at the end of the first half, Moldova will probably get an early first half draw. Opening the show?

Portugal one of those esoteric ones that does excellently in the SF only to fall back in the F? Probably not in this weak year.
