Ninjango moved well ahead of the Hackwood Stakes
Richard Hannon sent his Weatherbys Super Sprint hopefuls for a final breeze on the main all-weather at Herridge, with LILBOURNE LASS sparkling in her stretch.
The dual Bath scorer has been made ante-post favourite for a Newbury race Hannon has dominated over the years.
She has drawn gate one and although few of the main protagonists are also berthed low, Hannon is confident Jimmy Quinn's mount can justify her place at the head of the market.
Jimmy Quinn looks to have come in for a prized spare ride, while stable jockey Richard Hughes partners BIOGRAPHY.
He was a shade disappointing on his latest start, but has worked very well subsequently.
BIRD OF LIGHT also showed a liking for Bath, with a debut victory at the track, and she completes the Hannon triumvirate, with Harry Bentley booked to ride.
CRICKLEWOOD GREEN is joined by GOLD TOP in a Newbury conditions race and both horses showed pleasing zest in their midweek work up the all-weather.
Gold Top gets the sex allowance, but Cricklewood Green is perhaps making more progress.
SHOWPIECE finds himself in a four-runner maiden on the July Course and he stretched out well in his winding-up work earlier in the week.
Several older horses went through their paces at different locations on Hannon's two bases.
NINJAGO seems well in herself ahead of the Group Three Hackwood Stakes at Newbury, while JALAA moved particularly well ahead of the conditions race on the same card.
