Forest Des Aigles an each-way play at Cheltenham

Forest Des Aigles shaped better than the bare result last time out and from what looks a fair mark makes plenty of each-way appeal in the 1.50 at Cheltenham​
Lucinda Russell’s seven-year-old is a  progressive sort who has  won five of his 11 starts over the larger obstacles.​
He looked better than ever in the last of those on seasonal reappearance at Ayr in November when beating Monbeg River by 3 lengths off a mark of 130. Forest Des Aigles overcame a mistake four from home when closing and after taking up the running at the last forged clear on the run-in to score with real authority in the end.​
It was a most taking display and the son of Balko was value for more than the winning margin. The runner-up had previously run well to finish third in a decent class 2 at Aintree, whilst the fourth home Acdc went into the race having landed the Bobby Renton at Wetherby in good style.​
Je has run a solid race off his revised rating of 134 when a 10 length fifth of 11 to Warriors Rale in the Grand Sefton At Aintree under Henry Brooke where he made stealthy headway from the rear and held every chance on the run-in until hanging badly left and weakening late on.​
He is now able to race in this off 1lb lower and is reunited with regular pilot Derek Fox who has a 44 per cent strike rate on him. So off  just 10st 8lb, Forest de Aigles looks weighted to run a big race on the pick of his form.​
