Alderwood fine after Navan slipHeadlines
Alderwood

Tom Mullins reports Alderwood to be none the worse after stumbling and slipping up on the flat after the final fence on his chasing debut at Navan.

The JP McManus-owned eight-year-old was staying on well in third place behind Sword Of Destiny and Darwins Fox under a sympathetic ride from Tony McCoy when he came down.

"Thank god he's fine. There's nothing wrong with him. I got a bit of a shock yesterday but he seems 100%," said trainer Tom Mullins.

"It was just the bad ground. He put his foot in a hole. That's what Tony (McCoy) said. He was making up a bit of ground and then just tripped up.

"He jumped well. He was a bit free early on. Tony kept him back a bit to try to settle him as best he could.

"We were thrilled with him up to that."

Mullins plans to give Alderwood, winner of the County Hurdle at this year's Cheltenham Festival, his second run over fences sometime next month.

"We'll give him a few easy days then we might pop him out at Christmas or the week before," said the County Kilkenny handler.

"He'll go for a beginners' chase over two miles or two-mile-two. The shorter the better for the moment. We'll just try to pick a slot that is most comfortable for him.

"We might end up going to Leopardstown for a beginners or we could go somewhere the week before. He treated his fences with plenty of respect so we were happy with that."
