Do you think Gilbert should try to bridge to the chase group at some point, and benefit from Meersman's help? Or is the pace-setting strategy they have adopted now going to work?

Gilbert should wait till the last time they hit the Cauberg and jump near the end of the steep part, and hold the wheels of the others trying to attack there. He then will have Boonen behind, so he isn't forced to do all the pace setting. IMO
