Queen Qwara is ‘Flying’

Newly crowned sprint queen Qwara Bale is the ‘ruler’ among a ‘right royal’ Victorian contingent contesting the Group 2 TAB Flying Amy Classic heats (520m) at Albion Park on Thursday night.

Qwara Bale (Box 7), trained by Andrea Dailly, will face counterpart Do It (Box 2), trained by Jeff Britton, in Heat 3 (Race 6, 8.19pm). The dynamic duo is $2.00F and $3.00 respectively on TAB’s fixed odds market.

Winner of the G1 Sapphire Crown and G2 Warrnambool Cup, Qwara Bale – a brilliant 29.17sec (Best) last start GR8 Eight winner at Sandown Park – has won 14 races from 23 starts, including the past five in succession.

Meanwhile, Mr. Fix It (Box 1), trained by Jeff Britton, will fly solo for Victoria in Heat 4 (Race 7, 8.40pm). Mr. Fix It is quoted at $1.85F.

The highly underrated Mr. Fix It has won 12 races from 30 starts. He’s capable of extremely fast times and was a finalist in last year’s G3 Cup Night Sprint.

The Luke Whelan-trained Lakeview Cruiser (Box 3) – a litter brother of Lakeview Walter, who was scratched from Heat 4 – flies the Victorian flag in Heat 5 (Race 8, 9.04pm).

He’s won six races from 24 starts but finished third in the G1 Australian Cup and second in the G3 Easter Gift.

Lakeview Cruiser is $2.70EF with Zipping Kyrgios (Box 2), a G1 Golden Easter Egg finalist, prepared by legendary NSW trainer John Finn. He was also a G2 Maitland Gold Cup finalist and recently won the G3 Bob Payne Sprint.

The $75,000 to-the-winner G2 Flying Amy Classic final will be decided on June 10.
