Richard Hannon's trio of star milers are still engaged in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.

Toronado is firmly on target, although Olympic Glory is thought an unlikely runner and Sky Lantern has another option in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes.

Hannon could also run Producer.

Aidan O'Brien's main hope would appear to be American import Verrazano, third in the Lockinge at Newbury behind Olympic Glory.

O'Brien has also left in Magician, a Group One winner over a mile and a half at the Breeders' Cup.

Freddie Head has supplemented Anodin for a race he won with Goldikova in 2010. Anodin was last seen chasing home Cirrus Des Aigles in the Prix d'Ispahan.

Mike de Kock's classy Soft Falling Rain is also still in the mix.

Andrew Balding's globetrotter Side Glance and Lockinge runner-up Tullius hold entries, as does Jane Chapple-Hyam's popular Mull Of Killough.

Ansgar and Glory Awaits, second in the 2000 Guineas last year, complete the list of 13.
