Best From The West - February 17

The Adam Durrant trained Western Temple returned in good order last start and appears well placed to return to the winner's stall in the final event at Ascot on Saturday.
Formerly trained by Team Williams, Western Temple possesses just the sole win to his name from 14 starts, however he has placed on a further nine occasions and did mix it some of WAs stars last preparation.
Western Temple has placed three times behind Variation during his career, form which leaves him very well placed on Saturday.
Although unable to salute in his return, he pushed the much in-form Oliver's Travels and is expected to relish the extra trip.
Like the fact he has been kept fresh (28 days) and certainly gets his chance at the weights with the aid of Brodie Kirby's claim — who is airborne at present.
While some may tag him as a a non-winner, he certainly puts in and from the middle draw he should get every chance to break back into the winner's stall.
As much as 2-1 is being offered about his chances, which is a more than worthy gamble.
If he runs up to his best form he will be winning - simple.
The Trevor Andrews trained Private Dancer mixed her form last time in but is certainly more than capable when right and has to be kept safe in her return.
She possesses a great record at this track and distance and based on her performance in the W.A. Champion Fillies Stakes, she is expected to make her presence felt.
Never easy for a filly to give weight away to the boys, but she does have a touch of class about her and is worthy of an each-way ticket.
