Sword has the cutting edgeHeadlines
Sword Of Destiny wins the beginners chase

Owners Gigginstown House Stud and jockey Davy Russell brought home a superb three-timer when the Noel Meade-trained Sword Of Destiny won a top renewal of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase.

Although five horses had a chance approaching the last, Russell's partner (5-4 favourite) was going by far the better of the quintet.

Darwins Fox held an advantage early on the run-in, but Sword Of Destiny breezed past that rival to collect in some style.

Cheltenham Festival winner Alderwood made a promising chasing debut for the Tom Mullins team, but slipped up on the flat close home.

Meade said: "He had such a hard race the last day (Punchestown, October 31) that we had to go easy on him.

"I decided to come back in trip and it worked out on that ground. I think this is a hell of a horse and he was unlucky the last day.

"The original plan was to go for the Drinmore (Fairyhouse, December 2) had he won at Punchestown, but I'm not sure where he will go now. We will have to see how he fits in with the other Gigginstown horses."
