Kilmessan man Jason Maguire showed all his steel qualities to win with Overturn (2/9 favourite) at Doncaster yesterday after taking a crashing fall in the previous race.

The Kilmessan jockey took a heavy fall from Nodform Richard in a novice chase (click on link to view video SkySportsNews/ATR) but returned to the winners' enclosure about 30 minutes later.


Trained by Donald McCain, Overturn had 25 lengths clear at the line and will return to the track at the end of January for another race with Cheltenham on the radar also.

"I'm delighted with that, he's jumped super. When all is said and done, it's two-miles-three on softish ground. He'll be better again on better ground when we can let him roll along," stated the Meath jockey.
