The feature race of the day at Newbury is the Group Two Hungerford Stakes and the three year old Threat for Richard Hannon can use this as a stepping stone to rebuild his career.
The colt was a superb juvenile, finishing second in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Richmond Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
After some near misses he finally landed some decent contests, taking the Group Two Gimcrack at York's Ebor meeting and backing that up in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.
He has found it hard to improve in classy fields now a year older, finishing fifth in the St James's Palace Stakes and then a never nearer 10th in the July Cup.
Dropping down in grade and being tried at seven furlongs could see him back to his best as he holds to much potential to be overlooked here.
