After solid lead-up runs grey gelding Net Worth registered his sixth career victory when saluting in Thursdays $22,000 HMA Greenbank Benchmark 75 Handicap (1000m).

Dropping in class from contesting the Wellington Town Plate when finishing fifth hot on the winners heels last time out – the five-year-old has also competed in tough metropolitan races at Randwick and Canterbury recently.

With Hugh Bowman taking to the saddle the son of champion stallion Fastnet Rock settled close to the speed from barrier three and held off all challenges in the straight to score by a head.

Net Worth gave young trainer Mitch Newman his first metropolitan win when scoring at Warwick Farm in October 2013.

Newman is the geldings third trainer but looks to be getting the $80,000 yearling purchased back into a rich vein of form.
