Hampton Court Enters Pre-Training for 2015 Autumn Campaign

Three-year-old Hampton Court has begun his 2015 autumn campaign by entering pre-training this week.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained colt was spelled for a month after a disappointing run in the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) on November 1 but is ready to tackle the autumn.

Adrian Bott, Racing Manager to Waterhouse, told Racing Network on Tuesday morning that Hampton Court will return to the stables in the coming weeks after his month-long spell. Though connections are looking at 2000m races, no races have been confirmed for the colt’s autumn campaign.

“I expect he will be back in the stable in the next week or two,” Bott said.

“He’s had a nice spell and from all reports he’s done very well and we expect to see him back here in the next week or two.

“We haven’t made any decision on what his aims will be for the autumn.”

Hampton Court found his share of success during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, winning both the Listed Dulcify Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) in October.

His 2014 Spring Champion Stakes win was in particular an outstanding run. The colt was under the whip at 500m out and looked beat at 300m seeing as he was three lengths back. However he simply outstayed the two leaders to comfortably win by two and a half lengths.

This run led him to be the firm favourite for the 2014 Victoria Derby, paying $2.45 to win at Ladbrokes.com.au, however he finished middle of the field in eighth place, seven lengths off the winner Preferment.

“The jury is still out on the Victoria Derby as there was a howling wind there that day and he was out facing it most of the way, so we haven’t really concluded that he didn’t stay,” Bott explained.

“His win before that in the Spring Champion Stakes was quite stunning, so we know he’ll run a strong 2000 metres.

“There are many options for a high-quality three-year-old in the autumn so we’ll make those decisions once we see how he has come back and Gai will determine where she goes with him.”

Keep your eyes on Hampton Court’s autumn campaign at Ladbrokes.com.au. New customers will also receive up to $100 in a bonus match when they make their first bet.
