Ascot Straight Mile
This chart shows horse racing results for horses aged 3 years or older only.
The results are plotted winning stall number against the number of runners.
The resultant chart shows the Draw Advantage Pattern produced by the winning stall numbers.
Results on good or better going are shown in black.
Results on good to soft or softer going are shown in red.
*Please note as from 30th March 2011 Stall numbering on right handed courses was switched, so that the inside stall is always stall number 1. However the results have been plotted in the chart below as if the stall numbering has always been his way at Ascot. So for instance if there was a winner from stall 12 of 12 prior to 2011, this would be plotted below as stall 1 of 12.
WINNING STALL NUMBER
2005 - 2015
It is a widely held belief that high numbers are favoured in big fields, however the stats simply don't back this up. Overall their is very little bias, particularly in the smaller fields when the horses tend to form one group down the middle of the course. However it does appear that in bigger fields when typically the horses will split into two or more groups that it is actually low numbers which are favoured over Ascots straight mile.
