Race : Seeking The Lass Turf Dash - Stakes - $65,000
Track : Queensland (AUS)
Restrictions : All horses, 4 years old and up
Distance : Five and one half furlongs on the Turf
A full field of 14 very good sprinters will contest this short course dash at Queensland on Saturday. The speed will be very quick early with a number of known leaders engaged, FLYING BY and KYBONG looking the two likely to vie for the lead. I like HAGUENAU from the leensnyder barn who ran a great race at Grade One level at his latest effort. The consistent HSM from the alagou barn will start favourite and will be hard to beat again. RAVENS DYNAFERDER will be in the finish somewhere. Below is a complete rundown of each runner:
PP1 - 66325 AMARANTHINE (KY) 11/1
6YO Horse by Dehere 41 starts 12-8-3 $412,044 (simart)
Win Percent 29.2% Ave Pzemoney $10,049 SP Rating 105
Has not won since Allowance victory at Hong Kong over todayís distance some six starts back. Did run a good second in the Bbors Budda Belly Stakes at New South Wales two starts again over todayís trip. Not the roughest.
PP2 - 11134 HAGUENAU (JPN) 9/1
4YO Horse by Deep Impact 13 starts 7-3-1 $444,340 (leensnyder)
Win Percent 53.8% Ave Pzemoney $34,180 SP Rating 110
Won six in a row culminating with the Stormís Buda Stakes at Surrey three starts back and then an excellent third in the Grade One Longchamp Sprint at Paris. Lightly raced and will be hard to beat in this.
PP3 - 04212 DODGY (AUS) 10/1
5YO Horse by Lonhro (Aus) 31 starts 7-7-6 $235,131 (kingdamo)
Win Percent 22.5% Ave Pzemoney $7584 SP Rating 107
Scored a narrow win at Czech Republic in a seven furlongs Allowance race and then was a well beaten second in the Lexis Stakes also over seven furlongs at Indonesia. May find these too quick.
PP4 - 12200 URKOíS MONEY (IRE) 10/1
8YO Horse by Sadlerís Wells 47 starts 14-13-5 $478,888 (eliteteam)
Win Percent 29.7% Ave Pzemoney $10,189 SP Rating 104
Last start in this class was three starts back when second in the See My Baby Jive Memorial at Illinois over six furlongs. Last two starts has been down the track in Grade One events and better suited in this class and distance. S De Berg takes the mount and will give it every chance.

Is in great form at the moment with wins at his past three starts. Followed win in the Bbors Budda Belly Dash at New South Wales with a neck win at Hong Kong at his last start in the Barbís Ice Cream Stakes over five furlongs. Will be well handled by M Cameron who will give him every chance.
PP6 - 11222 HSM (AUS) 9/2

Win Percent 50.0% Ave Pzemoney $16,524 SP Rating 109
Has finished second at his last two starts both here over four and a half furlongs in Allowance races. Very consistent type who has been no further back then second at his last nine starts. Should be well ridden by the newcomer K Damo.

Outstanding sprinter who has won his last nine starts. Followed Grade Three at New Zealand in the Zeppelin Cap with another in the Barbís Deckhand Stakes at Victoria over five furlongs. Great record and will prove hard to beat. Will be given every chance by Queenslandís top jockey veteran C Wyatt.

4YO Horse by Sea The Stars (Ire) 17 starts 6-4-3 $505,020 (isosceles)

Last win was five starts back in the California Ham Stakes at Montana over six and a half furlongs. Last start was fourth at New York in the Cinnamon Cat Challenge over six and a half furlongs. May find these sprinters a bit nippy.
PP9 - 21488 FLYING BY (AUS) 17/1
4YO Horse by Flying Spur (Aus) 26 starts 6-5-6 $193,007 (oxley1)
Win Percent 23.0% Ave Pzemoney $7423 SP Rating 99
Last win was four starts back in the Barbís Mary Ellen Stakes over six furlongs in the Czech Republic when returning an SP of 110. Unplaced at next three starts and will have to improve greatly to figure in the finish.
PP10 - 45141 RAVENS DYNAFERDER (IRE) 9/1
4YO Horse by Ravenís Pass 16 starts 7-3-3 $230,888 (musse)
Win Percent 43.7% Ave Pzemoney $14,430 SP Rating 109
Has won twice in from his last three starts including last start effort when successful at Sweden in the Lifeforce Challenge Stakes over five and a half furlongs. Capable of being right in the finish.
PP11 - 11155 QUITE A SHOW (KY) 16/1
6YO Horse by Ghostzapper 41 starts 10-5-7 $285,008 (stevesim3)
Win Percent 24.3% Ave Pzemoney $6951 SP Rating 103
Finished hat trick of wins at Surrey in the Oxykal Memorial over five furlongs and start before that was a Stakes winner here. Last two have been very disappointing efforts and would have to improve to be in the finish here.

Win Percent 38.7% Ave Pzemoney $9302 SP Rating 98
Won two in a row ending with the Abbess Roding Stakes at Ireland over six furlongs but that was five starts back now. Would have to improve greatly on last couple to even grab a place here.

4YO Horse by Invincible Spirit (Ire) 24 starts 4-10-1 $208,543 (palmisland)

Good Luck to all Runners
