Go Zac Again ??

A few weeks ago I selected Zac Brown to win at Southwell and follow up his easy Chelmsford success on 11th January- however I didn't take into account his poor draw which he was unable to overcome, as many fail to do at Southwell, and he finished 4th beaten 3L to Perfect Pasture. 
Today he runs in the 4.10 at Wolverhampton over 5f. It is a Class 2 Handicap for a decent prize of £28k.
David Barron also runs Long Awaited and Graham Gibbons presumably had the choice of the two and opted for Zac Brown. Long Awaited came up against Royal Bajan and Megaleka last time out so you would think that Graham Gibbons is convinced that he has the better of  that form.
Boom The Groom brings some solid all weather form into this and Masamah is very good on his day but returns after a break so may just be found wanting today.
The one that could give Zac Brown most to do in my view is Basil Berry who was only just denied by Trojan Rocket last time out over 6f at Chelmsford when he was returning from a 4 month break. He travelled really well in that race and Steelriver and Mappin Time finished 3rd and 4th.
The draw often plays an important role here and Basil Berry is drawn 4 and Zac Brown is in 9 and that may just tip the balance in Basil Berry's favour and he can be backed at the ew price of 6/1 with most firms.
