We had drums at our judging class.
The general thinking I've Heard (not as a cook) is thighs and drums are easier pieces to retain moisture.
I have also read here that Jim Minion for one would not hesitate to turn in breasts, does, and does well with them.
But I think you should go with drummies or thighs Neil, to nail down the moister cuts first, before going to the trickier stuff.
