    Hi Jack, I know he’s a colt, it was just a mistype.
    I am similarly convinced of Quiet Reflection as you are of Shalaa, enjoy the race too.
    I will only enjoy it with the right outcome..
    Thank you, Nathan, you’ve expressed that greatly.
    Quiet Reflection is Burke’s sole class horse, and I don’t think it matters too much
    what his lower level horses did recently.
    I see Burke similar to Mr. Candy:
    If you consider Candy’s stable form, you could have never backed Limato..

    Don’t take my word for it hein bollow.
    I’m just a free spirit.
    But I’m sure Quiet Reflection gets the last Rolo, Polo mint and the best hay
    Win or lose She has been fantastic this season, don’t forget to vote her flat horse of the year

    Don’t worry, Nathan.
    I won’t make you reliable for the result:-).
    I am also very positive on her, and I hope Dougie finds a good position again.
    Yeah, she really deserves this title, and I will vote for her.

    I think Quiet Reflection deserves her 7/2 quote and may go off shorter, she has won 5 Group races in the last year and should be the one giving Shalaa a race for his money.
    Enjoy the race really looking forward to this one. :rose: Jac

    Quiet Reflection has been weak in the markets in the last couple of days. I laid a bit of 3/1 yesterday. Needs to buck the trend of Burke yard’s poor form. This late in the season, a drop in stable form is difficult to escape. Gosden’s in cracking form Jac. ;-)

    Burke couldn’t train a cat to catch a mouse and Dougie couldn’t ride a bike with stabilizers
    It’s all about looking after the machine, Burke only has eyes for one horse now reflect quietly will you ginge.

    When have you ever known me to be quiet Nathan? ;-)

    Not saying Quiet Reflection can’t win. Yes, it is possible the filly will be unaffected by the drop in form. Henry Candy won the Jubilee with Twilight Son when on a similar run and I remember Paul Cole keeping Mr Dinos in an isolation box before his Ascot Gold Cup. However, when a yard is doing as badly as Burke it has to be represented in odds. Being a greater chance of Quiet Reflection running poorly than there would be if her trainer were in good form. Even the Queen catches a cold now and again when those around her are inflicted.

    Jac said “I think Quiet Reflection deserves her 7/2 quote and may go off shorter”. Am saying I very much doubt she will go off shorter than 7/2 and if you fancy Quiet Reflection it may be advisable not to take 7/2 and wait.

    The Oddschecker row is now all pink, every bookmaker lengthening and now 9/2. :yes:

    value is everything

    FWIW in Oisin’s Q&A on sportinglife.com (a few days old now) he was asked for his best bet today:

    It’s a phenomenal day of racing to be part of and we may well have the best horse in the world taking part in Almanzor, as well as some other brilliant clashes. We’ll see Limato, Quiet Reflection and Shalaa in the Sprint, a clash between the best of the generations in the QEII and maybe even an Arc-placed horse in the Long Distance Cup, so you really can’t knock the quality of the racing.

    If I was to name one horse I’d say Shalaa in the British Champions Series Sprint. It’s obviously a very tough race, but I thought he looked burly in the paddock before he won at Ascot the other day and yet he still managed to win nicely on his first start for more than a year. He’s got winning form on soft ground but to me he looks like a real top-of-the-ground horse from his action and if it comes up good on the day, I’d fancy him to win.

    I rarely pay attention to any jockey tips but I thought it an interesting response given his opinion of Almanzor and the fact that he has no obvious association with Shalaa.

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    I did think he might hold on Joe, I was almost riding the race myself in the last 1/2 furlong, it
    wasn’t to be….that’s racing for you :-(

    Well done Darren, you’ve always thought this one would come good. Well done to judge if you’re still
    looking in, we could do with some more choice picks like that :good:
