2014 Cox Plate Bound Carlton House Impresses Berry

All reports from jockey Tommy Berry after the first public gallop of Carlton House ahead of their Cox Plate 2014 campaign were positive over the weekend.

Gai Waterhouse’s imported Street Cry stallion was put through their paces before the first race at Sydney’s Randwick meeting on Saturday with Berry in the saddle of the rising seven-year-old.

Their hoop was pleased with what they showed too in the cruisy 1200m hit-out, Carlton House gearing up for their much awaited new season return.

“He quickened up very well down the straight,” Berry told Racing Victoria on Saturday.

“He’s a happy horse, he pulled up well and didn’t have a massive blow.

“I’m looking forward to the spring carnival with him.”

Group 1 performed in Europe under former trainer Sir Michael Stoute, the Queen Elizabeth-owned stayer has had five runs on Aussie soil since being transferred to Waterhouse’s care at the start of last year.

Their best performance was a second behind Silent Achiever in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) this March when just nosed out on the line.

They were last seen backing up from that run a month later on April 19 at Randwick when Berry first rode them for their third to It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m).

Berry was then back in the saddle on Saturday and keen to continue his association with the promising runner this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Carlton House is already dominating the futures betting markets for their major spring aim, Waterhouse prepping them for a run in the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley Racecourse on October 25.

Cox Plate odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have Carlton House as the $9 favourite and only runner at single figures pre-nominations.

Their biggest dangers at this early stage of betting are then Chris Waller’s dual Doncaster Mile champion Sacred Falls, and the Roger James-trained Kiwi mare Silent Achiever who won the Ranvet Stakes – The BMW double this year, who are both at $11 to win Australasia’s weight-for-age championship.

Waterhouse is still mapping out their exact spring plans with a first-up option also yet to be decided.
