OVERLAY is on the upgrade, winning her last couple of starts including a victory over C&D last week. She's up 5lb for that but there looks more to come and she can get the better of topweight Inner Steel. The latter went close over a shorter trip at this track on his reappearance and should be thereabouts again but Heezagrey looks in the handicappers grip now having landed a double back in August. The best efforts of Call At Midnight and Absolute Shambles are few and far between and Royal Kicks is preferred to both with a recent outing under his belt.
