Racing Victoria (RV) and the Benalla Racing Club (BRC) wish to advise that tomorrow’s meeting (Friday, 3 April) at Benalla has been moved to Wednesday, 8 April owing to wet weather.
The track, when inspected this morning, was already in the heavy range with surface water detected.
With showers continuing this afternoon, additional rain expected tomorrow and the lack of available transfer venues, the decision was made to move the meeting to next week to give the track the opportunity to dry out.
With the program remaining the same, nominations for the meeting will be re-opened and will close at 12 noon tomorrow, Friday 3 April. All trainers will be required to re-nominate for Wednesday’s meeting.
Acceptances for the meeting will close at 9:15am on Monday, 6 April with preference in the ballot given to those who were final acceptors.
Trainers are reminded that acceptors at Benalla can become late entries until 5pm today for Ballarat on Monday, 6 April and Bendigo on Tuesday, 7 April.
Acceptors can also become normal entries for Sandown next Wednesday until 10am tomorrow.
