    You can read all about correlation in my blog below. BTW, 11g provides some relief with extended stats. Dynamic sampling at higher level also can provide some relief for columns with higher correlation.

   But, do you have any index on (SRC, TF ,CDT)? That might make hash join plan cheaper and CBO might choose it.. Just a guess :-)
