PRESCRIPTION went close last time and he can get the losses back today at the main expense of Satwa Laird and Desert Dreamer. The form of the Sir Mark Prescott yard is a big plus for the selection and she lost no caste in defeat behind Jaconet at Wolverhampton last time. Her wide draw probably beat her that day and as she had previously won well here, she is a confident choice to get the losses back. Satwa Laird has been knocking on the door of late and he was only narrowly beaten by Glowing Praise at Ascot last month. He was doing his best work at the finish that day so the drop in trip is perhaps not ideal and he is making his all-weather debut today. Desert Dreamer has gone well here in the past and he won at Chester last month, but consistency is not his strong point and although he should go well, others are preferred. More Time Tim has got an impressive strike-rate on the all-weather so he could be worth considering at a price. Crown Choice won a handicap at Kempton back in April and he remains unexposed so there could be more to come. Prescription looks the stand-out bet here and she gets the vote.
