Crowd Favourite Seals It With A Kiss

By Mark Brassel

To the roars of the crowd Destiny's Kiss recorded his tenth cup victory when a last-stride winner of the Fujitsu Air McKell Cup (2400m) at Royal Randwick.

Sent out a $21 chance ($13 on the TAB), Destiny's Kiss powered home to claim the cup by a neck from Naval Warfare (Michael Walker, $3.40) who looked to have the race in his keeping all the down the straight.

Favourite Our Century (Brenton Avdulla, $2.30) was just over a length away from the first pair in third berth.

"He's a popular horse; he always seems to be shorter on the TAB than the bookies," trainer Joe Pride said.

"I don't know how we're ever going to retire him, he's evergreen and never gets tired of doing his job. I wish they were all as easy to train as him. He's an easy horse to have around the stable.

"I knew the mile and a half (2400m) would suit him and he loves it here - it was a ten out of ten ride from Jay (Ford).

"I gave him a trial on Monday and he went super so we came here today with quiet confidence.

"Quite often he gets left back in the field with those big weights but he was within range today."
