For the first time in a number of years the UK has a strong Eurovision entry from James Newman:
Unfortunately, recent history and the voting audience’s predisposition against the UK mean that it’s trading at odds between 34/1 and 130/1.
Current favourite (4/1) is Switzerland’s rather glum entry:
Ireland seem still to have lost their way with this 200/1 shot:
This is quintessentially French and my current favourite:
The French don’t have a great recent record (last won in 1977 – L’oiseau et L’enfant) but the current 8/1 looks like good value to me.
This year’s contest takes place on 22 May in Rotterdam. Most contestants will perform live at the venue with the possibility of a limited audience.
