International Chess Challenge: Active Queen

We have new moves in our international chess challenge between
Hutt International Boys' School (New Zealand) and The Links (England).

Last time we saw The Links attack Hutt's queen with their knight.

The queen dropped back one square with 4 Qh4 - keeping the queen in an active position - and The Links played 4 ...g6. They also considered 4 ...Bb4+ and 4 ...d6 before deciding on the move of the g-pawn.

The moves so far:

1 e4 e5
2 Qh5 Nc6
3 d3 Nf6
4 Qh4 g6

The current position:

Hutt International Boys' School (New Zealand) v The Links (England)
Will the queen prove to be in a good position to attack the black king, or will she be a target for black's pieces?
