“A difference of opinion is what makes horse racing and missionaries."

If it’s BBC4 – it must be Eurovision?

Well, there’s unusual. BBC4 now regards The ESC as Art and I am wholly in admiration of Graham Norton, whose contracts seems to allow him to cover the Eurovision Song Contest for any and everyone. BBC, Virgin, Bratislavan WNK1 – anyone. He makes McEnroe at Wimbledon look like a sloth on Ketamine. Anyway, the money is down, the word is out… MALTA. One of my favourite websites is Popbitch, which my late-night friends from Madame JoJos know only too well because it is to Popbitch that all tales from the jilted and unsatiated flow. I take without recourse to permissions, but with humble acknowledgements,  this insight:


* Malta – This Lizzo-esque electoswinger is the obvious choice on paper, and the bookies’ favourite for months, but others have been gaining on it in recent days

* Iceland – Last year’s hot ticket, 8-bit bedroom-disco hero Daði is back with more of the same and has tons of goodwill in the bank

* France – About as French as it can be. Melancholic cigarettes-for-dinner tier.

* Italy – Aiming for Arctic Monkeys, landing a little closer to Terrorvision, it’s a juicy bit of red meat for the ‘real music’ crowd


* Ukraine – A bonkers wailing folk-rave mash-up that might induce a passive acid trip

* Finland – An early 00s nu-metal call to take shots, throw up, and stick your middle fingers in the air

* Denmark – A proper time-warp, like something from Eurovision ’87. Not in a kitsch ironic way; a genuine bug-in-amber relic.

* San Marino – They got Flo Rida to do a verse on the record, can they convince him to come to Rotterdam?

MALTA Win – UKRAINE e/w 4 places

By suscribing to Raceweb, you’ll receive notification of every story, tip and article we post.

You’ll see every tip for every sport, by every writer first. The moment we print it, you’ll know it.

PLUS, whenever we issue a special report on, say Cheltenham or Royal Ascot, you’ll be the first to know!


Annual domain registrations, site hosting, software licences, form guides, research costs and a host of other minor and but not inconsequential outgoings are the burden for all website owners.

Even the smallest donation can make the difference between the Off and On switch.

It’s not just that once in a while we actually prove accurate, and you possibly make a bit of pocket money, but occasionally, we might perhaps suggest a view that could possibly change someone’s mind. For the better.

That’s a lot of Maybes and Possiblies, but sometimes we have to try and change a plan or encourage them to move a mountain, and if that means we make you smile, or shout with anger, or shake with laughter, then Huzzah!

That’s your donation that did that. Thank You.
