During his juvenile season Trumpet Major showed plenty of promise with three wins to his name and was never out of the first five in eight runs which does show he has plenty of class. He finished 2011 with a decent 5th place in the Dewhurst at Newmarket behind the likes of Parish Hall and Power who could both re-oppose him on the Rowley Mile this season.

Coming into this season Trumpet Major was not one of the key contenders in the 2000 Guineas Betting but after he romped home to win the Craven Stakes on the Rowley Mile he has lept towards the head of what looks to be a competitive Classic market. Richard Hannon is always a trainer to follow in the big races and in trumpet Major he looks to have another talented horse who could well be one of the stars of the season.


Trumpet Major has course and distance form on the Rowley Mile which is a massive plus for punters wanting to back him. His win in the Craven was very impressive with the only doubt surrounding the quality of the opposition that day but he couldn't have won any more impressively. Has to be a major each-way contender but may lack the class at the very highest level.
