Night Of Thunder was given a thorough examination after his Coral-Eclipse run and remains on course for the Prix du Moulin.
The 2000 Guineas winner was tackling a mile and a quarter for the first time at Sandown, but beat only one home.
"I thought he didn't get the trip, but it was a stupid race and those at the front got away with it," said Hannon snr.
"We went all over him after Sandown, he had a bone scan, his scope was good. The Prix du Moulin's what they're talking about now."
