Racing: Ryan in anxious wait for Dip Benny

Three jockeys are in the running for the ride on Derby winner Benny The Dip in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York next week. The colt's trainer, John Gosden, said yesterday that a decision would be taken at the weekend.

Willie Ryan, who rode the colt at Epsom and when second in the Eclipse, Olivier Peslier, who landed the Dante on Benny The Dip, and Frankie Dettori, subject to Sheikh Mohammed's requirements, are being considered.

Gosden said he will be discussing the situation with Benny The Dip's American-based owner, Landon Knight. He added that Ryan will partner the colt in work on Saturday.
