Global Giant put himself in the picture for the Saudi Cup meeting in Riyadh next month when running out a convincing winner at Wolverhampton on Monday evening.

Having his first start for John Gosden, the heavily-backed five-year-old came with a rattling run in the centre of the course to land the Betway Conditions Stakes by three and a half lengths in the hands of Robert Havlin.

Havlin was impressed with the performance and expects Global Giant to be all the better for the outing.

“He’s a decent horse, this,” the jockey told Sky Sports Racing.

“He relaxed really well. He’s found a nice rhythm, the whole way round – and I was really impressed with the way he quickened up and kept at it.

“He’ll definitely strip fitter for the next day – he had a good blow. There are options for him.

“This guy is pretty professional. Dubai Warrior has had five or six runs now, (but) he’s just still a big baby, learning the whole time – and you’ll see a different horse again the next day, I suppose.

“With this guy, that’s probably what we wanted to see. There is an option with the Saudi race as well – it just depends if he gets in.

“I’d imagine there will be a lot of horses from Europe (entered) for that. Speaking to (owner) Sheikh Isa (Salman), when I was back in Bahrain, if it was feasible he’d have liked to take a horse out there – so it’s another option.”
