The dual Group Two-winning son of Footstepsinthesand will bid to open his account for the campaign by claiming a third victory at that level in the seven-furlong prize.
Having made a satisfactory return on his first start over a mile in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Cheveley Park Stud-owned colt turned in a tame effort dropped back to six furlongs last time out, beating just two rivals home in the July Cup at Newmarket.
Hannon said: “Threat will probably turn up in the Hungerford Stakes. He has been a little bit hard to gauge this year. I wasn’t disappointed with his run at Royal Ascot in the St James’s Palace Stakes, as it was in a very good race.
“His last run in the July Cup was definitely frustrating. He was in the perfect position and had a nice lead. I thought he was going to run well, but it didn’t work out that way.”
