In depth

Verdict

This maiden features some expensively-purchased colts and geldings and the form may be worth following. Duplicity only needs one to drop out to get a run and he’ll be expected to improve on his debut second over track and trip in March. Stablemate Tripoli is also worth a market check but MUCH MORE HALO just failed to overhaul market rival K P Indy here in February with Restoring Dreams third that day and Bravo unplaced. Bob Baffert’s four-year-old can recoup losses being much better drawn today. Silardi wasn’t disgraced over 6f at Oaklawn Park at the start of the month.
