Raising some broncos - outrivalled by expert! (8)


I believe the answer is:


'expert' is the definition.
(virtuoso is a kind of expert)

'raising some broncos outrivalled' is the wordplay.
'raising' is a reversal indicator.
'some' says the answer is hidden in the clue (some of the parts of the word are used).
'osoutriv' is hidden within 'broncos outrivalled'.
'osoutriv' back-to-front is 'VIRTUOSO'.

'by' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for virtuoso that I've seen before include "Paganini" , "Showing dazzling skill" , "Person who excels in techniques of singing or playing music" , "Brilliant player" , "Genius" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
