CHIKA MATTGREGOR (2) has been outclassed at AP in 2 of her past 3 starts and will appreciate getting back to the triangle in this grade of race. Starting from gate 9 here 2 starts back her closing effort was solid when 6m from the winner. Given a chance to light the lamps she might prove hard to stop.
DIAMANTINA DEVIL (5) returns from a break and was last seen back in Dec when making an error in the run. Given 2 trials to prepare for his return, the 2nd of those was a tidy effort and suggests when he lands the right draw he can go close to a victory.
DEADLY ROCKER (3) made his Qld debut when finishing down the line behind SLICE OF HEAVEN after striking trouble in the run. With better luck here he can return a much improved effort.
PRIVATE JUJON (8) had no luck last start when looking for open space and did well to be just 4m from the winner ZALTA. Trailing through early to settle handy he is an exotic hope in this.
SELECTIONS: CHIKA MATTGREGOR (2), DIAMANTINA DEVIL (5), DEADLY ROCKER (3), PRIVATE JUJON (8)
