EL CHAPO PICKS UP FIRST WIN

El Chapo has been running consistently and has been knocking on the door so it was great to see him pick up his first win at Catterick. The Leathal Force colt was held up in mid-division by jockey Paul Hanagan. He was asked for an effort approaching the final furlong and when he hit the front stayed on to win by half-a-length for owners Merchants & Missionaries.
