OUTAHAND outshines his rivals

The John Bateman-trained OUTAHAND continued the stable’s purple patch of form with a strong win at Goulburn on Monday.

OUTAHAND started at $13 in the 1300m set weights maiden event but outshone his eight rivals to score by almost half a length.

The late maturing gelding took until his five-year-old season to make his raceday debut, finishing third at Goulburn last September.

But the son of PRINCE ARTHUR made up for lost time on Monday, posting victory at his fourth start.

“That was a very good first-up performance,” rider Shaun Guymer said.

“They went quick and that set the race up for him nicely.

“He was able to chime in on the turn and was in for the fight. He was strong right to the line.”

OUTAHAND is the third winner from the Bateman stable’s last 7 runners, equating to a 43% strike rate.
