Harness racing superstar Lennytheshark was the early favourite for the Inter Dominions and after a stunning win at Gloucester Park in the first round of heats, he shortened even more for the Grand Final.

In the second round of heats at Bunbury tonight, Lennytheshark drew a great marble at barrier three and was a dominant favourite with punters.

Easy On The Eye and Amanda Turnbull burned the gate from barrier two to lead easily with Lennytheshark and Chris Alford content to sit on his wheel in second as Amanda kept up a solid tempo.

Lovers Delight and Chris Lewis moved up three wide with over a lap to go outside Easy On The Eye and Lennytheshark and that was the racing order as they turned for home 800 metres later.

Easy On The Eye grabbed a length as they turned for home with Lennytheshark running about a touch on the bend but once Lennytheshark knuckled down to the job in the straight he quickly grabbed Easy On The Eye and eased out for a comfortable win.

Easy On The Eye stuck on well for second in front of a very game Lover's Delight who overcame her three wide run to hold third.

It was a lovely drive from Chris Alford who controlled the race from the death seat and didn't put Lennytheshark under real pressure in securing the win.

With the two heat wins in the bank, Lennytheshark will firm again for the Grand Final and judging by his two runs todate, he is shaping as a worthy favourite.

Tonights win was the twenty-third of Lennythesharks career and took his earnings over the $650,000 mark. 

The son of Four Starzzz Shark cut the mile out in a sharp 1:52.8 with closing sectionals of 54.7 and 27

With two impressive wins in the heats, the question most pundits are asking is can anyone beat Lennytheshark in this years series.
