OUR LITTLE DIGGER (7) added another minor to his tally last start, hitting the board in 5 of his last 7. Hampered behind a tiring runner, he lost vital metres before getting going to grab the bronze when 4m from the winner. Sweating on the 1 holding the front, if he is leaders back, he looms large.
JUST JOSHIN (5) is a consistent performer and last start was beaten by gate 6 when forced to retreat early before trying to chime in. Setting the speed here 2 starts back from the ace, he was gunned down in the closing stages. The gate stings but he can make a play in the small field.
COLONEL JOY (1) started from gate 2 last time out and settled in the running line after an unsuccessful shot for the front. 5m from the winner, he has 5 placings from 8 attempts here at Redcliffe as he searches for his 1st win.
OUR UNCLE JIM (3) was a qualifying winner 5 starts back over the AP 2138m trip, but has been unable to replicate that win since, albeit meeting some strong opponents. Back to this grade he can feature.
SELECTIONS: OUR LITTLE DIGGER (7), JUST JOSHIN (5), COLONEL JOY (1), OUR UNCLE JIM (3)
