Analysis: I’m extremely unsure of how good he really is, but he’s pointing towards Dubai, so that could lead to the Kentucky Derby. Tapwrit keeps running well, which makes Master Plan look better and better; he finished only one length off of Tapwrit’s winning effort in the Pulpit last December. We’ll see if he can have success in Dubai against an international field in the UAE Derby.
