IN FIRST PLACE AT CATTERICK

In First Place was exactly that at Catterick after a great ride by Paddy Mathers. The two-year-old Bated Breath colt had been placed in four of his eight starts and it was great to see him finally get his head in front. He did look to be in trouble at the back of the field not wanting to go but Paddy kept pushing and they started to make headway over a furlong out. Once they hit the front they stayed on well to win by a length-and-a-quarter.
