You may see draw advantage advice recommending "High numbers best straight course" or words to that effect, but this has always been a very weak pattern.
On good or better going, the Bottom half, Top half split slightly favours the Top half of the draw by 46 wins to 42.
Results are spread across a wide range of stall numbers throughout this chart.

On good or better going, in races of 8 - 13 runners, the Top 6 stalls won 14 of 26 races 54%.
During 2004, 3 of 6 races under those conditions were won from stalls 1 to 4.
In 2005, stalls 1 to 4 won 5 of 7 races.
Although the previous 7 seasons had produced 10 wins in 13 races from the Top 6 stalls under those conditions, the 2004 and 2005 results demonstrate quite clearly how strong looking patterns over distances beyond 6F can prove to be unreliable.
In draw advantage terms, 7F is a long distance over which to expect results to be consistent, especially on a straight course.

In 2005, Doncaster Racecourse placed the stalls Low in 4 races.
3 of those 4 races were won from stalls 1 and 2, with the third dead centre drawn 7 of 13 runners.
Until more results are available with stalls Low, we should not read too much into such a small sample, but it will be interesting to see what happens if more races are started from the Low side of the course.

On good/good to soft in places or softer going, results are spread across most stalls throughout this chart.
There are far stronger pattern elsewhere.  There is no recommendation.
