Best From The West - September 1

The Adam Durrant trained How To Fly creates plenty of interest in her return when due to contest the fourth event at Belmont on Saturday.
Only lightly raced, How To Fly came a long way in her maiden preparation, placing in six of her seven starts including three wins.
She continued to raise the bar and has won three of four attempts over this trip.
Although lining up against the older horses, she appears very well placed down in the weights and her sole trial in the lead up was very good.
The Wizard continues his association with mare (placed 3/4) and she looks to have a bit on her rivals.
As much is 5/2 is being offered about her chances which appears a more than worthy gamble, have her marked 6/4.
From the inside draw she looks to get a lovely trail just off the speed and with even luck in the straight, she should prove very hard to hold out.
The Dan Morton trained Man Booker had his preparation cut short last time but looks to be back on track and hard to beat in the seventh event on Saturday.
Only lightly raced for a six-year-old (17 starts), Man Booker has won on eight occasions and is certainly above average when right.
He's won three of five attempts at Belmont and is unbeaten in sole attempt over this trip.
They really don't trial any better than he did at Belmont recently and the engagement of Pike is a decent push.
Under the weight-for-age conditions he is well placed away from Pounamu and he should be able to adopt a forward position from the wide draw.
There's already been a fair bit of early market support for Man Booker which is always a good sign.
If he's run up to his trial, he'll be winning.
