Overyou makes a swift reappearance under a penalty after winning over 3m at Haydock on Wednesday. Diarmuid O'Reagan again takes off 10lb but this looks tougher and she's closely matched with last week's Fakenham second Soudain on their run together at Market Rasen on Boxing Day. Heez A Steel finished ahead of Soudain and Call me Mulligan over track and trip last month and isn't without a chance on that form while Classic Cut has dropped to a decent mark and ran a lot better at Carlisle last time. MANSONIEN L'AS disappointed when favourite here last time but will get through the heavy ground better than most and can take advantage of his light weight to get back to winning ways.
