The Eights start on Wednesday; you have until 9.30am to make your predictions and win a bottle of champagne (a case if all five are correct). The competition is sponsored by Profundus, a marketing consultancy firm specialising in the telecommunications industry. Entries to Kevin Carter.

We now have 34 predictions; In summary:
