KOSIKA won on the Polytrack for Godolphin but had just the one outing in 2013 and has joined Mark Johnston subsequently. The North Yorkshire trainer boasts a fine strike rate at the south coast track and his filly gets the nod to make a winning return. Go Far has done all his winning on the all-weather so far including a couple of victories at Wolverhampton this year but is lightly-raced on this surface and could figure. Lionheart won over track and trip for Luca Cumani last term and should be thereabouts while Aqua Ardens is another course winner with claims on his return.
