Weir's good sprinter Voodoo Lad will be aimed at the Winterbottom - for which Caulfield based Lloyd Kennewell's Viddora, last year's winner, is favourite - while his three year old Junipal, narrowly beaten in listed company at Flemington on Oaks Day, will be aimed at the WA Guineas.

Jarrod McLean, Weir's Warrnambool foreman who also trains a handful of horses under his own name, will also be heading west with his shock Mackinnon Stakes winner Trap For Fools. He will contest the last group 1 race of the year, the Kingston Town Classic, on December 8.

Godolphin is not usually associated with runners in WA, but their evergreen stayer Tally, successful at Sandown on Saturday in the group 3 Eclipse Stakes, could be earmarked for a tilt at the Perth Cup on January 5.

The six-year-old has now started 34 times, often in the highest company, and brought his earnings to over $1million with his win in the 1800 metre Eclipse.
