Really? Bid 5H showing 2 key cards. Partner then bids 5S asking for QH, so you deny by bidding 6H. Yes, you might miss the grand slam, but Sod's Law says that one opponent will have QJx and you will go down in 7. If you're playing Duplicate, remember that on average it's better to go for the 60% score of 6H possibly making +1 than the 100% score of 7H which might go down and score you 0%.
