Verdict

The market will be the best guide to Donald McCain's newcomer The Weatherman, a half-brother to the trainer's winning bumper and hurdler Dorabelle. He can't be ruled out but ANITOPIA didn't do a great deal wrong on his debut at Perth last month and Linda Perratt's grey is probably the one to beat today. Littlemissmoffatt should comfortably confirm Hexham running with George My Friend but is unlikely to be good enough to open her account here
