The Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on April 6 has been earmarked as Globe’s starting point for this campaign, following the lightly raced five-year-old’s second jump-out on Monday morning.

After an interrupted spring preparation due to cardiac arrhythmia suffered in the Group 2 Feehan Stakes (1600m) last September, Globe has returned with two impressive jump-out performances.

Clocking 1:00.96 for the 1000m on Monday, Globe secured victory by 2.5 lengths.

Co-trainer Mick Price shared insights with after Monday’s session.

“He had plenty up his sleeve and Jye (McNeil) said he thought he had plenty more to give,” said Price who trains in partnership with Michael Kent (Jnr).

“It is a bit hard to get a gauge on his race fitness, he had a long time out, he’s a bit round in condition but did not have a blow.

“He looks really well and he’s had nothing go wrong and sailed straight through and week by week he’s improved.”
