Easy winner for Duke

There was more first-crop success for Duke Of Marmalade on Friday when Hall Of Mirrors (2c Duke Of Marmalade-Apache Dream, by Indian Ridge) ran out an easy winner at Gowran Park.

Jockey Joseph O’Brien bided his time aboard the150,000 guineas yearling before storming to a three and three-quarter length success in the mile contest.

The Racing Post’s analysis noted: “When asked to pick up 2f out, he accelerated nicely and put the race to bed. He seemed to enjoy passing horses and this might be the making of him.”
