Benalla R2 No.2 - LORD VON COSTA

Nice horse this who just missed in a good maiden on debut at Seymour over 1200m three months ago - there's been gallopers he beat home who've since been city competitive. Trialled up at Wagga 5/12 and looked good doing so, he'll get the gun run from gate 2 and be very hard to beat with natural improvement in my book.

Benalla R4 No.7 - GIGGLY

Comes out of a good race at Geelong over 1200m two weeks ago, was very new to it all/wobbled around the turn before pricking her ears and having a good look around in the straight. Her last 100m was very good though when she flattened out and gave the indication the step up in trip to 1400m would be suitable. Natural improvement and better for the day out, she's our best of the day.

Cowra R5 No.1 - BUDGEE BOY

Been a long time between drinks but fancy this is his day, he's been racing very consistently of late and was good at Dubbo a week ago over 1100m when six weeks between runs. Like the seven-day turnaround (improvement?) and the progression to the 1350m at this point (racing like he needs it). He'll be handy from the inside draw and only needs a touch of luck to get the win.
