Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying it can’t work just I find it weird that one minute she is worried and doesn’t want him to race and the next it’s a case of “My Place is Here”. To me it always felt like she was only telling Anakin that so he wouldn’t feel bad about leaving.
As for the Quigon assisting Anakin during his space battle maybe the line he gives Anakin before the Pod Race might work better. “Remember concentrate on the moment feel don’t think, use your instincts, May the force be with you”.
Just a suggestion 😁👍
