Aspirant looks more of a nursery type by the look of two Windsor runs while Brownsville has shown more than enough to be competitive here. He tired late on last time and should be much more at home on this return to 6f. Roseburg and Strategical are noteworthy newcomers with the latter the most likely of the pair as the in-form Godolphin operation enjoys a good record with first-time juveniles and this 320,000gns purchase warrants close attention. However, the racecourse experience of ZARWAAN could just prove decisive. Ed Dunlop's Dutch Art colt made a very pleasing debut when fourth to Jallotta in a good to firm Newmarket maiden and should be more streetwise here.
