Caloundra Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open race. Luncies was a strong last start winner and looks poised to make it back to back off that. Desert Icon should be around the mark and has good claims in a race like this. Bois D’argent maps nicely and should go close in this field while Regal Lion was a good last start winner and nice upside for the in form stable.
