    Personally, that is WAY too fast. Account for the piano and judge, the piano has many notes at once vs you having 1 at a time. If the judge cant keep up with you then he will know you are going to fast. 140 is almost presto, not what the piece calls for. If you want fast, go 125 or so. If you cant line up your tongue and valves, you are going way too fast.

    Don't play it faster than you are capable of doing. Better to take it slower and play it well than play it very fast and sloppy. Clean articulation and full notes.

    I think I'd swing it.

    Just kidding, although it does swing pretty well. Play it at a speed you can do it cleanly, and keep the tempo steady. Get the technical part of it down so well that you can concentrate on musicality - dynamics, phrasing, feeling, etc.
