King appears before the licensing committee at Portman Square to apply to join the training ranks. He has been assistant to the soon-to-retire David Nicholson in recent years, and he will take over the reins at Jackdaws Castle as soon as he gets the official go-ahead.
It is not yet known when King's licence would take effect. "At the moment I don't know when David's last runner will be and when I will have my first - we'll have more idea tomorrow," he said yesterday.
King will move his team to a new yard at Barbury Castle, Wiltshire, at the end of the current jumps season.Reuse content
