Blue Army is related to a couple of winners and Invincible Fresh is a half-brother to a Group 2 winner. But both will need to be above average to make a winning start as both NEWTON'S LAW and Hesbaan are rated 77. The latter was placed at Newbury last term but the former has the more recent form with a second at Newmarket. He beat a subsequent winner on that occasion so the form looks solid enough and Brian Meehan's charge gets the vote.
