Sky Lantern and exciting juvenile Beacon were among those at Richard Hannon's to catch the eye of our gallops reporter.
TORONADO showed that he is in sublime form in his latest piece of stronger work to give Richard Hannon encouragement that he can master Kingman in the Sussex Stakes.
The four-year-old hardly took anything out of himself when easing to a smooth-as-silk triumph in the Queen Anne Stakes and although set to give his rival 8lb is in tip-top form ahead of the latest 'Duel on the Downs'.
He will spearhead the customary powerful Hannon raiding party for its local meeting, one that could also include SKY LANTERN.
She may just have needed her run at Royal Ascot, her first appearance since December.
SHAMSHON showed plenty of foot in his latest speed work and will drop back in distance for the Coral Dash on Saturday.
He forms part of a powerful Hannon raid on Sandown, headed by 2,000 Guineas winner NIGHT OF THUNDER in the Coral-Eclipse.
The latter will have his final breeze for that in the morning.
Several two-year-olds have worked this week, with BEACON displaying abundant promise ahead of a Listed race, the Dragon Stakes.
The hat-trick seeker has excelled in his work since trotting up at Bath, showing in the process his liking for fast ground.
DAME LIBERTY is another heading in the right direction following a convincing debut triumph.
TOM HARK caught the attention of the judge first time out. He should improve on that in his maiden at Sandown on Friday.
Other older horses to take the eye included BEAU NASH, BON VOYAGE and STORM TROOPER.
