I plan to come back from Hampi to Chennai by overnight train on my last day of my next trip; the train from Hospet arrives at Tirupati at 8:45, my flight is at 1:30 in the night, so have plenty of time to spend still going around.

I can take the first available train from Tirupati to Chennai (Madras Express, 10:05-13:20), but the connection can be risky if the train from Hospet is late.

Or I can spend another day in Tirupati area (I will have already visited Tirumala though) and take the Saptagiri Express at 17:20 arriving in Chennai at 20:35. This train originates from Tirupati, it shouldn't be too late so that I can have time to go to the airport and take my flight.

Any suggestion?

Spend the last day in Chennai if you have no particular reason to be in Tirupati.
