Next Best Bet: R1 – 4. LINCOLN CASH MAN

Best Roughie: R6 – 1. SNAKE CAVERN

R1 – 1.30pm. Benalla Glass Maiden Plate – 1206m.

No4 LINCOLN CASH MAN (NEXT BEST BET) Lost all chance first-up when he knuckled at the start and over-raced early when 9-length fifth Lux Interior 1100m Geelong Maiden Good4 58kg Mar. 17. Finished solid 2-length fourth Villa Sarchi previous start Kyneton 1200m 3Yr Maiden Nov. 8 and third Echuca 1100m on debut Oct. 27. Shows promise and should have the pace to be handy throughout from wide gate.

 

No10 RADIANT WARRIOR

No9 OLIVIA’S GIRL

No6 STAR SAVER

 

VALUE RUNNER: No10 RADIANT WARRIOR

R2 – 2.00pm. Royal Hotel Benalla Maiden Plate – 1606m.

No10 ABSOLUTION Blew the start but recovered to get within a length of Lady Cartier when second-up fourth Bendigo Maiden 1400m 56kg Good4 as a $21 chance Mar. 13. Improved by recent racing and gets her chance over this more suitable trip. Rates highly with in-form Daniel Moor in the saddle again.

 

No7 THE KROC

No11 ALADINA

No2 HARD GOT

 

VALUE RUNNER: No7 THE KROC

R3 – 2.30pm. Benalla Waste & Recycling Maiden Plate – 2046m.

No10 REZEALIENT Has made steady progress in four runs and finished fourth this track 1606m three runs back. Cost himself any chance of winning when he ducked in badly at 200m when 1.5-length second   Creedence 2025m Cranbourne Maiden 56kg Good4 Mar. 9 then wide throughout when 2.75-length fifth Miss Admiration 2000m Ballarat Maiden 58kg Mar. 20. Ready to win.

 

No11 SAVVY ACQUISITION

No7 BOCAIN

No2 CRAFTY LION

 

VALUE RUNNER: No2 CRAFTY LION

R4 – 3.00pm. McDonalds Benalla 3YO Maiden Plate – 1406m.

No4 OLYMPIC LAD Finished gamely for 1.25-length second Viking Raid 1300m Bendigo 3Yr Maiden 58kg Mar. 6 then trapped wide and worked hard for 2-length fourth Rossman 1400m Sandown Hillside 58kg Good4 Mar. 21. Improved by three runs this campaign and only needs a bit of cover in running to figure in the finish. Will find this easier than recent assignments.

 

No12 PURE COLOUR

No6 SOUTH BEND

No5 SOLUMINATE

 

VALUE RUNNER: No6 SOUTH BEND

R5 – 3.30pm. RYAN & MCNULTY SAWMILLERS BM64 Handicap – 1606m.

No4 RENEGADE (BEST BET) Most impressive at first run for 26-weeks when he blitzed Skelm, Chiyou 1406m Maiden 58kg Good4 this track Mar. 18. That was only his second race start and he gives the impression he will measure up to city class. Should be too classy for these.

 

No7 ERAMOSA

No2 KIPE

No1 SAUCY JACK

 

VALUE RUNNER: No1 SAUCY JACK

R6 – 4.00pm. Comfort Inn Benalla BM58 Handicap – 2046m.

No3 ALL ABOUT JULIA Placed at three runs since beating Fix The Date 1500m Yarra Valley Maiden 53.5kg Dec. 28. Fresh for 4.5-length third Toan Thang 1590m Wangaratta BM64 56.5kg Mar. 4 then 2-length third Apocolypto, Hurry Harriet 1850m Kyneton BM58 59.5kg Good4 Mar. 21. Fred Kersley’s 1.5kg claim will help her cause. Rates highly.

 

No5 SUPER ROCKSTAR

No4 DAYS GO BY

No1 SNAKE CAVERN (BEST ROUGHIE)

 

VALUE RUNNER: No1 SNAKE CAVERN

R7 – 4.30pm. Bet365 BM58 Handicap – 1206m.

No10 BON FOR GLORY  Right at her peak following four runs this campaign and looks the one to beat from barrier 1 with Daniel Moor in the saddle. Ran on well for 3.2-length fourth Beaverbrook 1100m Stawell BM58 58kg Feb. 28 then hit lead at 50m but swamped on line when head second Magic Monarch this trip 57.5kg Mar. 18. Meets that runner 1.5kg better for narrow margin and drawn to advantage.

 

No8 FIRST WATCH

No4 MAGIC MONARCH

No1 DEAL MASTER

 

VALUE RUNNER: No8 FIRST WATCH

R8 – 5.00pm. Benalla Timber Products BM58 Handicap – 1406m.

No1 CAMBODIAN PRINCE Has been racing in higher grade than this since wins at Pakenham Class1 1400m and Mornington Maiden 1200m in previous campaign. Solid first-up third Tardis 1200m Pakenham BM64 58.5kg Mar. 1 then never in it when 10-length last of 12 to Snogging 1300m Sandown 58.5kg Mar. 21. Up in weight but Kersley rides again to ease that burden. Perfectly drawn to get the gun run.
