Queensland Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Even race. Desert Icon will be hardest to beat and looks ready to peak in this. Bonny Ezra is hard to catch but should be around the mark. King Frankel has claims and is suited to this trip. Fancy Man has been around the mark this prep and goes in the mix while the best version of Parry Sound would give this race a shake and has claims in this field.

Queensland Cup 2023 Runner by Runner

1. King Frankel (1)

Should enjoy this trip and maps to get all the favours. Hard to beat against this lot and looks well placed here. Hard to beat from the pole.

2. Desert Icon (8)

Class runner of the field and looks well placed against this lot. Just needs to find a spot early and it will prove hard to beat in this moderate race where many of these are struggling for form.

3. Fancy Man (3)

Been around the mark all prep and is suited to this field. Top 4 chance.

4. Bonny Ezra (2)

Hard runner to catch but good galloper when on song. Keep an eye on the market and should prove hard to beat from the draw.

5. Parry Sound (10)

Will need luck from the barrier but has a booming turn of foot. Can win if close enough on the turn.

6. Tappy’s Lad (4)

Leaning to others.

7. Military Gambler (5)

Put in a much better past 2 runs and has hit form again. Looks well placed in this field and can go on with things here. Hard to beat.

8. Linthorpe Lad (13)

Needs luck from the draw and has been subject to a big drift. Leaning to others.

9. Sayl (11)

Can’t have.

10. Little Mix (15)  – SCRATCHED

11. Enuff He Said (12)

This looks too tough.

12. Ostermeier (6)

Racing in good form but leaps up in grade. Place chance.

Harder here. Leaning to others.
