Wharewhiti, Eyecon and Itsarapt head to Melton for Thursday night meeting

posted in: Drives, News

Three starters will go to the Melton races on Thursday, with Wharewhiti, Eyecon and Itsarapt set to go around.

Six-year-old gelding Wharewhiti found the 1200m sprint distance tricky at his last start and reverts to a 2240m event, having drawn the inside of the second row.

Wharewhiti has won three races since crossing the Tasman from New Zealand as a maiden last May.

Nothing came home better than Eyecon at his last start with driver Sophie Jefferies getting the gelding up for an impressive second placing at Geelong.

The winner of six races, Eyecon is on the second row of a 12-horse field at Melton.

The third starter will be stable newcomer Itsarapt who is an eight-year-old gelding, with three wins and six placings from his 41 race starts.

He races in the final event at the nine-race meeting.
