Outlandish Lad set to travel

South Australian gelding Outlandish Lad is set for a string of road trips over the summer following his victory at Caulfield on Saturday.

The win, in the CFV Nightingales Plate (1100m), has forced trainer Dennis O'Leary to look to Melbourne for Outlandish Lad's next assignments.

O'Leary has not yet had time to select the targets but is resigned to the fact the seven-year-old has outgrown the upcoming races in Adelaide.

"I haven't really picked one out but it sort of forces us to come over here because there aren't really any higher rated big races in South Australia," O'Leary said.

"With his level of rating up, he's going to get 61 or 62 (kilos) back home and we came over here and only got 60 and the three kilo claim (for Damien Thornton) got us in with a chance."

O'Leary said the Group Three Standish Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on New Year's Day was a possible target.

"The Standish Handicap was one we had in mind," he said.

"We thought there would be higher quality horses than him with higher ratings which might compress the weights a little bit."

The only concern is the way the gelding travels, according to O'Leary, who was worried during the trip from South Australia this week.

"He didn't drink a lot," he said. "He's a bit funny when you take him away and you worry about those things.

"You just want to do everything right."

Outlandish Lad won his first two trials this preparation before running an unlucky sixth at Flemington last month.

But he is poised to step up and add to his 11-win career which has produced almost $500,000 in prizemoney.

"He's been going super. We've got more condition on him this preparation," O'Leary said.

"He did terrifically out in the paddock and came in big and he's kept it on and that's going to help him a lot."
