Cory's victory in Oslo secures top spot in the latest rankings.

The latest update of the World of Brass — 4barsrest.com Rankings sees little change at the top following the recent round of contests, although there have been significant changes further down the table.

Cory’s victory at the European Championships in Oslo further enhances the Welsh band’s position at the top, while Eikanger’s runner-up spot takes the Norwegian Champion to seventh place.

Milnrow’s recent fine contesting form, including victory at the Grand Shield, sees the North West band enter the top 20 for the first time, while new North American Champion Princeton makes a major mark in entering the rankings at number 59.

The next update will follow the English National Championships at the end of June, which will include the results at this weekend’s All-England International Masters.
