“A few ridges have developed at Redcar over the years and you definitely need to keep on the right side of those. The bottom turn is tricky to navigate too – there’s been more than one problem there – and the straight rides tremendously long. So, although it’s flat enough, races seem to change three or four times after the home turn”. Jason Weaver
Draw Bias & Pace Analysis
Over 5 furlongs and 6 furlongs the stalls are placed in the middle of the track at most meetings. There appears from the stats that runners on the far rails do better and this therefore favours low drawn horses. However as most horses appear to track over the advantage is not great.
Over 7 furlongs and the straight mile horses have enough time to win from any stall and there doesn’t appear to be any bias.
What appears to be important at Redcar is to be prominent. As mentioned when the ground is riding fast they don’t tend to come back to you and the words “few of them got into this” are heard.
Over the 1m1f trip horses drawn high have to get across quickly to find a position otherwise they will be left running very wide round the tight bend into the straight.
