Verdict

Related to the useful Oh This Is Us, Oh Herberts Reign cost £105,000 as a yearling and is an interesting newcomer but ASYMMETRIC, a rare two-year-old winner for Alan King at Goodwood, sets a decent standard and should be capable of defying a penalty. Manaccan is related to several winner so can improve on his fourth at Ayr and Sterling Knight may also do better after a fourth on Newbury.
