Now with his fourth trainer, Zoutenant ($7) was driven to the lead late in the race by jockey Melvyn Maseyk to score by a neck from Sestina (Jody Hughes, $6) with I Am Dynamic (Ricky Blewitt, $4.80) a head away in third position.

Zoutenant is now in second spot in the NSW Picnic Champion Series with 24 points and trails the front-runner Another Plan by just the one point.

The gelding has recorded 11 wins and 17 placings from his 80 starts for $334,895 in prizemoney and continues to compete with great zest.

Military Bay, with Ashley Boyd riding at $6, picked up two points in the Series for finishing third to Skipper Joe (Brent Evans, $3 favourite) and Policy (Maddison Wright, $3.50) at Mudgee.

Military Bay joins Hokkaido and Rogue Runner in equal third place in the Series with 21 points.
