Arab Poet a max bet at Beverley

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Arab Poet looks thrown-in on handicap debut in the 2.50 at Beverley today and gets the max bet treatment at 6/4.

Sir Michael Stoute’s colt had four starts last dseason, and ran reallyu well on the thgird of those when chasing home Massaat in a decent 14-runner maiden at Leicester.

Although no match for the easy 3 3/4 length winner, Arab Poet ran on strongly after being slowly away and it was a highly promising effort given how the race panned out.

Massaatt is also a very useful sort who went on to finish an excellent second to Air Force Blue in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes and Newmarket and is now rated 116.

Arab Poet went on to round off the campaign with an easy 2 3/4 length success at Lingfield, and has has been allotted an opening handicap mark of just 83.

That looks very lenient judged on his run behind Massaat, and he looks the type that will do really well as a three-year-old.

The stable has also made a good start to the season, and with Ryan Moore in the saddle Arab Poet looks to have everything in his favour to make a winning return to action.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 10pts win Arab Poet (6/4 bet365, BetVictor, Paddy Power, Sky Bet – BOG)
