What's the search string? Or is the search string irrelevant and
that's just your compulsory ordering.
Assuming anything that searches has to be returned and has to fit into
that order, I would frankly just map your special codes all together
to some sort of 'sort order' number.

So, Code=>C = 4000, Code =>B=3000. Prefer=true=>100, Prefer=false=>0.
Then, sum it up. Or some such.

Remember that fuzzy search will match even things with low probability
so a fixed sort will bring low-probability matches on top. So, either
hard non-fuzzy searches or you need to look at different solutions,
such as buckets and top-n items within those.
