Not many horses can show the sort of gear change off the back of solid fractions that QUIET REFLECTION (best price 2/1)
exhibited last time out and that deadly weapon in her armoury looks set to prove the key component in her bid to claim the second running of this Group 1 prize for three-year-olds. Karl Burke’s charge first displayed her trademark turn of foot when showing a clear pair of heels to her rivals in the listed Harry Rosebery Stakes at Ayr and she followed that impressive victory up with an equally authoritative performance in the Cornwalis Stakes at Newmarket on her final start as a two-year-old. Stepped up in trip this season, the daughter of Showcasing began the campaign with a game victory at Chantilly, but it was her success last time out which really got the pulses racing and has seen her price collapse in price for this contest ever since. The way she left for the dead the likes of Donjuan Triumphant, Gifted Master and Buratino was something to behold and providing she’s in the same sort of form 20 days on, it’s hard to envisage any of the others having the necessary qualities that she possess.
