FIRECRUISE stormed to a six length victory at Pontefract on last week's handicap debut. David Barron's charge can shrug off a penalty and go in again with more to come from him. Baileys Forever won her maiden at Thirsk in August but has only raced on fast ground so far and stablemate Oriental Relation finished last of 17 on the only previous occasion he attempted 7f. Shyron's earlier double came over 6f on the Polytrack but Evacusafe Lady showed improvement when encountering soft ground at Newmarket and should go well again.
