Draw Bias

5 Furlongs

Their is definitely a large bias favouring high drawn runners on the 5 furlong course at Bellewstown.

This may seem strange as you would expect horses drawn on the inside to be favoured, but in reality the dogleg nature of the 5F course means that horses drawn on the inside actually have to run further than those with high draws who start in the middle of the course and can run in a straight line from start to finish.

One Mile
