Meru (Duke of Marmalade – Katsumi) broke through for a very well deserved win in the Laurel’s Function Centre maiden over 2238m at Sale on Tuesday 15th November. A change of tactics saw Meru jump to the front and stay in touch with the lead throughout, battling on under strong riding from Rhys McLeod to hang on by a nose.
