You may see free newspaper draw advantage information for Beverley that recommends a high draw advantage in races up to 1m :-  "High numbers best up to 1m", "Those drawn high are favoured to some extent over most trips"....... etc.

In 7F races on the round course, there is a bend shortly after the start.
Perhaps it is this factor which leads some draw advantage analysts to assume that there should be an advantage favouring horses drawn next to the rail in the High numbered stalls in races of 7F and 1m.
This has been the accepted advice for years in these races, but as you can see from the chart below, the bias favouring the Top half of the draw during the last 10 years has only been marginal.

This is a very weak pattern.
The major factors that influence the draw in these races are increased field sizes, the going, and the distance of 7F.
All 3 have a negative effect.

On good or better going, the Top half - Bottom half split, shown at the bottom of the chart, favours the Top half of the draw by 39 wins against 64.
On good or better going, the Top 6 stalls won 65 of 105 races 62%.
Those figures were boosted by the 2006 results :- 9 of 12 wins from the Top 6 stalls.

Throughout this chart, results are spread across both High and Low numbered stalls.
This can be seen particularly clearly in races of 16 runners, where 14 started from the bottom half of the draw, and 17 started from the Top half.
In races of 12 and 13 runners, stalls 1 to 6 won 8 races and the Top 6 stalls won 5 races.
In races of 8 to 11 runners, the Top 6 stalls won 25 of 30 races 83%, which looks quite impressive,
  but that percentage was boosted by 5 of 5 wins from the Top 4 stalls in 2006.
With so few runners over such a long distance, this part of the pattern must be suspect.  Coincidence could easily be at play here.

On good to soft or softer going, results shown in red, the Top 6 stalls won 21 of 43 races 49%, a very low percentage for 6 stalls.
In races of 12 or more runners, the Bottom half - Top half split is 16 wins to 19 in favour of the Top half.

During 2005 the Top 6 stalls won 10 of 14 races on all types of going, and 10 of 15 in 2006, which both bettered the overall trends.

In my opinion, the best that can be said of this course and distance is that the Top half of the draw has been favoured, particularly during the last 2 seasons.
Over such a long distance, and with no obvious tight clustering of results, there are better opportunities elsewhere.
There is no recommendation for this course and distance.
