Verdict

Paul Nicholls looks to have found a decent opportunity for Gowran bumper winner PAY THE KING to make a winning debut over hurdles. He's probably not one of his yard's leading novices but these are a mainly modest bunch. Water Wagtail is improving with experience and was second over a longer trip at Ffos Las last month while Annacotty has won a point-to-point and was third in a bumper at Kempton earlier this month. Chemistry Master wasn't up to much on the Flat but showed a glimpse of ability over timber at Doncaster recently and could be capable of better.
