There's plenty to like about Sir Mark Prescott's on-form Florentia in this handicap but with him not as good on polytrack as on turf we'll make preference for the potentially well treated SATWA GOLD with In Secret also making the shortlist. After scoring over course and distance in a claimer the selection followed up that run with a slightly disappointing effort in the same grade at Lingfield last time. He looks to have a good opportunity to banish that run now back in handicap company off a workable rating. Florentia has won two from four starts on turf but in seven efforts on the artificial surface has yet to score. She does look to act on it though and a step back up to this trip should also help. In Secret has found just one too good twice in his last three starts and still looks competitive under his current load while Via Mia is still weighted to challenge after running well at Wolverhampton last time. Plenty are possibles here but we side with the only one with course and distance form and that is Satwa Gold.
