SIR BRUNO's only win to date came over C&D and he looks set to add to that here. Beaten on the line over track and trip last time, Bryn Palling's charge can go one better dropping down a grade. Llewellyn has been in fine form on the Turf over 6f but has won over today's trip before and has to come into the reckoning but dual 6f winner Balti's Sister has something to prove on her previous attempts at this distance. Jay Bee Blue went close off today's mark at Brighton a week ago and C&D winner Piccolo Express is another to consider.
