Last start winners Sharakti and Diamond Edge worked well together on the outside of a heavy No.2 Grass at Cambridge today

Sharakti (German) and Diamond Edge (Murphy) were on terms throughout 1000m in 1:7.2, sprinting the final 600m in 38.3.   Both Ruakaka acceptors were travelling strongly at the finish.
