Jet Away to Skip 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes

David Hayes will avoid testing his exciting import Jet Away against crack colt It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on Saturday.

The six-year-old will instead be sent to the paddock, with Hayes keeping his focus firmly on the 2013 Melbourne Spring Carnival.

The experienced Victorian trainer identified the Cape Cross entire as a potential Caulfield Cup contender and in two starts on Australian soil he has lived up to the hype.

Jet Away won the Yalumba Golden Mile at Bendigo first-up before taking out the Group 3 Easter Cup at Caulfield.

“If the field falls away and some horses get injured we may run, but it’s more than likely he’ll be out of work tomorrow,” Hayes told Racing Network.

Jet Away was a Listed winner and Group placed in the UK.

Jet Away might not be contesting the Queen Elizabeth but one horse who will definitely be there is Manighar.

A runner-up in last year’s Queen Elizabeth and a multiple Group 1 winner, the Peter Moody-trained import hinted at signs of his best when fourth in the George Ryder after some poor early autumn form.

Moody is confident the seven-year-old can give it a real shake and said the Queen Elizabeth has always been the target.

“He galloped really well during the week and this is the race we’ve targeted him for,” Moody told Racing Victoria.

“He had a week of show jumping after his last run which is something we’ve done before with him and he’s been back at the Sydney stables since last week.”

It’s A Dundeel is expected to start a clear favourite when he steps up to take on the older horses after proving untouchable in Sydney’s three-year-old triple crown.
