Is there a draw advantage at Newmarket?
Newmarket Draw Guide Middle to high draws seemed at an advantage that day in the 25 runner race with the first six runners home drawn 13, 14, 18, 21, 20 and 22.

In horse racing, the ‘draw’ of a horse relates to its position in the stalls and is relevant in All-Weather and Flat racing. A horse with a ‘low’ draw (low stall number such as 1, 2, or 3) will be close to the rails while a horse with a ‘high’ draw will be further away from the rails.
Is there a draw advantage at Thirsk?
Thirsk Draw Guide At present this C&D looks the most draw biased in the country. Interestingly the bias is far less strong over 6f, although a high draw is generally preferable. Over 7f there is a perceived 7f bias, but generally you can win from anywhere. There is no draw bias at 1m or further.
Do draw bias drivers work?
The clear benefit here is that the movement of the CG and the weight creates a larger area of the face that launches shots with draw spin. Additionally, there is also evidence to suggest that draw-bias drivers help average golfers get the club square at impact because the CG is closer to the shaft.
What is the best barrier in horse racing?

The 5f trip at Beverley has long been regarded as arguably the strongest draw bias C&D in the country.

Is there a draw bias in Kempton over 5f?
Over 5f there is a strong draw bias with the 5 furlong course at Kempton probably the tightest 5 furlong course in the country and therefore not surprisingly it is a massive advantage to be drawn low. A lot of the 5 furlong races are won at the start, when a low drawn runner breaks quickly and makes all.
Is the 1m 6f at York a fair track?
The 1m 6f distance starts with a two-furlong chute at the end of the back straight before they join the main course. York has always been considered to be a fair track and when I was studying draw bias ‘24/7’ back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s the mile trip offered a decent low bias but, other than that, there was little to report.
When does a draw bias occur in horse racing?
A draw bias exists if there is a distinct advantage to horses drawn in certain stall positions. This usually happens if the surface the horses run on is different on one part of the course compared to another. It can also happen if the shape of the course provides a shorter route to the winning post (such as on the inside of a bend).
