Keep an eye on: Blackbookers - 27th July 2022

Racing at Sandown and Warwick Farm yesterday and we’ve identified a horse to follow from each meeting.

Warwick Farm Race 4- Arbitration & Strombus 

I think we can follow the first couple out of this race in Arbitration and Strombus. Both were first up and have produced new peak ratings which suggests they're both in for very good campaigns. Arbitration went out a maiden winner and showed a nice turn of foot here to win the race. She can win again next start. Strombus will be suited getting to 1400m next start and potentially even out to a mile later in the preparation.

Sandown-Hillside Race 6- El Rocko

This guy looks a new horse since coming back as a gelding and the way he's won both starts this time in suggest there's easily more to come. A 7 length maiden win first up over 1200m, he jumped straight to Bm70 midweek grade and destroyed a fairly handy field. Danaustar was coming off a dominant win himself and Shove Over ran a great race behind Daytona Bay and Jimmy The Bear at Flemington prior so he hasn't beaten hacks. El Rocko's peak rating came behind Forgot You in the G2 Vase at Moonee Valley over 2040m so you'd think he's only going to get better over further.
