Default a g:checkBox to checked?

OK, Ive been fighting this for a while and cannot figure it out. I'm new to Grails, so have mercy.

I have a need to set a checkbox as checked as the default. I've been able to get the checkbox to work with my query when I leave it as unchecked as default.

My checkbox definitions is:

I have tried setting the "checked" attribute and I've tried various permutations of setting the params.areDuplicatesExcluded in my controller. But so far, everything I have tried either has no effect at all, or sets the parameter to checked no matter how the box is set.

I know this should be easy, but I have hit a brick wall.

Any help would be appreciated. How do I default the checkbox to checked and still get it to work?

<g:checkBox name="areDuplicatesExcluded" value="true" checked="${params.areDuplicatesExcluded}"/>
I agree. Here's the link:
