Verdict

RITA'S BOY has the form in the book with a second at Southwell. He's preferred to Billyoakes and gets the vote despite what looks a strong challenge from newcomers representing powerful northern yards. Kevin Ryan has a good recent record in this and Robben's pedigree is packed with speed while the Fahey stable won last year's renewal so Millgate could also figure. Denzille Lane cost 110,000gns as a yearling and is another to note while Spend A Penny was purchased for £180,000 at last month's sales in Ireland.
