Lennytheshark on a margin of mass if he can bind Miracle Mile. Picture: Stuart McCormick

VICTORIAN star Lennytheshark can plonk a gold-plated cherry on a tip of a fantastic three-tiered cake this Sunday.

Victory in a $750,000 SEW Eurodrive Miracle Mile would broach a field’s solitary Victorian-trained wish an memorable three-way and a place in pacing history.

Not usually would Lennytheshark turn a initial equine given Preux Chevalier in 1984-85 to win a Inter Dominion, Victoria Cup and Miracle Mile in one season, he would also turn a initial Victorian-trained pacer given Smoken Up in 2012 to win a Australian Pacing Gold Grand Circuit.

They’re a dreams, though initial are a realities.

Punters have kept New South Wales champion Beautide ($2.80) and New Zealand’s Have Faith In Me ($3) tighter than a David Aiken-trained hope, with Lennytheshark sandwiched between a span on a front row.

Boom four-year-old mare Arms Of An Angel will start from separator one, with tutor Shane Tritton dogmatic she would “lead for sure” and “dictate a competition … she has a outrageous winning change”.

Those fighting difference fit absolutely with Lennytheshark’s motorist Chris Alford.

Alford will have a ability to collect his impulse aboard Lennytheshark, who has proven his speed and stamina and subsequently has a large window of opportunity.

“A lot will count on a initial 50m, though he’s really versatile and so there will be copiousness of options.”

The mile stretch hasn’t featured prominently in Lennytheshark’s shining season.

His final mile was a Inter Dominion feverishness during Bunbury, when he won by 2.2m, though before that it was a Group 1 Len Smith Mile during Menangle when he was third behind Smolda and Beautide, overcoming a formidable pull to make belligerent on a favourites.

On that day a leader ran a 1:50.6 mile, though it’s approaching that on Sunday a leader will have left a good understanding faster, potentially melancholy Adore Me’s Australasian and lane record mile rate of 1min47.7sec.

“He’s a super miler,” Alford said. “I consider a harder they go a better, he’s a stayer though he has speed and we need a good stayer to run a discerning clever mile. He can do it all now.

“I’m flattering certain he can go (1 minute) 48. If a lane is fast, it is a good day and there’s no zephyr I’m certain they can run that.”
