Merweb changed trainers in March and showed promise for his new stable and stepped up to 1m4f on the 9th of April, where he finished fifth. At Bath on April 24th his new trainer again chose that he run over 1m3½f and he made no mistake on this occasion. Taking the lead at the 2f but kept doing enough in the final two furlongs to stay in front all the way to the line.
This was his third win. Now that he has mastered a longer distance we can expect a fast reappearance and further prize money.
