Wodonga racecourse remains the favoured venue to ensure the city's Anzac Day march returns after a year off due to COVID-19.
Sub-branch officials have inspected the race track and believe they can successfully manage a march of up to 2000 participants abiding by the latest Victorian government protocols.
Sub-branch president Jim Begley said the event was on track to proceed due largely to support from Wodonga Council.
"We've got people who work for the council bending over backwards to make sure it all happens," he said.
"We've had a couple of meetings with them and I know (Wodonga Council chief executive officer) Mark Dixon wants it here.
"They are prepared to do whatever it takes to have it at the racecourse."
The Wodonga march traditionally ends at the city cenotaph in Woodland Grove after coming up High Street.

But a Plan B for not being at the cenotaph was under consideration.
"We need something lay a wreath in front of," Mr Begley said.
"We have the soldier who used to be on top of the cenotaph that got wrecked by vandals in our clubrooms.
"If it's possible we might be able to take him up there as a one-off."
A final decision on arrangements for next month's commemorations is expected before the end of the week.
A left-field option to approach Albury RSL sub-branch and join its event was floated as an alternative.
Investigations are also under way around live streaming the event if it goes ahead at the Wodonga racecourse.
"There will be QR codes along the street where people will be standing in a taped off area," he said.
"The only exemptions will be the bands, Air Force cadets carrying banners, horses and people motorcycle."
