and yeah I usually do put my cahooners on the block after October and offer a little advice to those sending out the invites to new bands here. I've included my 6 recommendations into the opening prices.

Note tho: Camborne haven't taken up an invite for quite a while now and Zone One dropped out of the framework by withdrawing from this year's event having placed 11th in the 2011 Senior Cup.

Senior Trophy - 2013
Zone One Brass 11/2 F
Camborne Town6/1
St. Dennis10/1
Bournemouth Concert Brass10/1
Jackfield (Elcock Reisen)10/1
Wantage Silver 'A'11/1
Friary Guildford Brass12/1
Oldham (Lees) 14/1
Wardle & District Anderson Brass16/1
Sherborne Town16/1
Medway16/1
Unison Kinneil22/1
Longridge22/1
City of Cardiff (Melingriffith)25/1
Sovereign Brass28/1
Laganvale (Metal Technology) 33/1
Dalmellington33/1
Easington Colliery50/1
Newtongrange66/1
Hatfield Colliery66/1


beyond the highlighted 6 i'd go for the likes of...

St. Austell Town
1st Old Boys Association
Lydbrook Silver
Lanner & District Silver

maybe Bollington, Glossop or Becontree beyond those 4

Get on Unite and Burry Port before Paddy notices that they had blinders at the Nationals ;-)

Told you so ;) Although I thought it might have been the other way around!

I see what you're saying however I also go on form at the event, Unite (Stocksbridge) don't seem to over-achieve here.

I'm glad you think you've discovered my identity, I can promise you - you haven't ;)
 
If Redbridge are that low in the results I will wash your car for a year - we have been top 5 for the last 3 years - pretty pessimistic prediction.

Get some money on yourself! I'd be very shocked if you came that low down, bands above you there that you wouldn't even think twice about competing against!
 
If selections continue with the current trend it'll be Red Priest for The Grand Shield. I think the announcement is usually made at the beginning of November so not much longer to wait

At 16/1 I'll definitely be putting a few quid on Rothwell!


I hope it's not IMO. I think a lot of Wilby's is great (Revelations, Masquerade, New Jerusalem etc) but Red Priest is not one of his best, too many unoriginal themes for me and it's really awkward to rehearse.
Visions of Gerontius didn't go with this routine for whatever reason.
I'll go for Music for Battle Creek or Harrisons Dream for 2013!

It'd save a lot of bands a lot of money on practice mutes as well if they didn't pick Red Priest.

I must say I do like Red Priest, but having not played it before I couldn't comment on what it's like to rehearse.

Rothwell at 20/1 - whats the most I can put on this? Those are great odds. I will put £50 on them to win....

When there are three of the top 8 from the Nationals heading the field? It's very far from a done deal for Rothwell.

So test pieces have been announced then?
Red priest for the shield, capriccio italiane in the middle section and journey into freedom for the bottom section!

Having been over looked in the last couple of years it would be nice to see Rainford get invited this time round. With promotion to champ section and recruitment of some ex Black Dyke players they would be dark horses to put your money on.
