Kevin Ryan has found a good opportunity for PROCLAMATIONOFWAR. He went close on his reappearance at Southwell and placed efforts on fast ground last season suggest this faster surface will suit. He's streets ahead of the remainder with a handicap mark so they are easily dismissed, while Torridon didn't exactly set the pulse racing either when well beaten on his recent racecourse debut over track and trip. That leaves the newcomer Dreams Of Reality and it would be no surprise if Tom Dascombe's filly made her presence felt in this modest company.
