MONEY NEVER SLEEPS stepped up considerably on debut when staying on really well on his return to Newmarket, going down by three-quarters of a length to Elusive Flame. That appeals as the strongest form on offer and the move up in distance looks sensible. Right Regal is a danger after finishing close-up on both starts in Newmarket maidens, whilst Tidy Affair is more exposed but not ruled out for the in-form Hannon team. As is often the case, Godolphin turn up double-handed and it would be folly to ignore Famous Poet and Zaeem. Presburg was just inched out on his Salisbury debut when completely unfancied but this looks tougher.
