Draw Bias & Pace Analysis
Beverley sprints are over a straight 5 furlongs. The next distance is 7 furlongs 100 yards.
There is a massive bias over the 5 furlong course in favour of low drawn horses with stall 1 to 3 getting more than half of all winners. That means if your horse is drawn 4 or more and is less than about 2/1 you are getting worse odds from the draw and to hell with the horses ability. Certainly in big fields if your horse is drawn high there is a very big disadvantage as only 8% of winners come from the top three stalls.
As with 5 furlong, the 7 furlong 100 yards result shows a massive draw advantage. You have to be drawn low or you can virtually forget it. This is because the track goes downhill and right from the stalls and if you don’t get the inside rail you are pushed wide. As can be seen from the pace analysis front runners are massively favoured over the 7 furlong trip (2nd best place to front run in the UK) and so if you can bag the rail from a low draw and be in front coming out of the bend then you are hard to beat.
There is a big pace bias at Beverley, with prominent runners being heavily favoured. If you discover a front runner drawn low at Beverley over 5 or 7 furlongs then bet big!
