Horse racing draw bias results HAYDOCK 5F  2 charts
Stalls usually positioned HIGH or Centre ( C ) ( Low are shown L )

NOTE THAT Haydock created a new sprint course for the 2009 Flat Season.
The new 5F and 6F sprint course is located towards the middle of the track, on the far side of the far (Low) running rail when viewed from the grandstand.
The results of races shown below took place on the old course which was next to the Grandstand.

The results shown below are therefore of no use.

Not a lot of results with stalls positioned High.
The stalls were positioned High during 2005 for the first time since Sept 2nd 2000, and again in 3 races during 2006, but all on going softer than good.
On good or better going, the Top 6 stalls won 9 of 13 races 69%.
On good or better going, in races of 8 to 18 runners, the Top 6 stalls won 8 of 8 races 100%.
8 races is a very small sample, but the 2005 result of Aug 6th supported that trend, from the Top 6 stalls under those conditions with stalls against the High rail, and historically, there is a very good supporting pattern.
On
going softer than good, stalls 1 to 6 won 9 of 12 races, a trend also supported by the 2005 results, but as a general rule, results on that type of going often prove to be inconsistent.

2006 results :- 5-10, 7-15, 3-17

2005 results :-  Stalls High     6-15, 1-17, 13-17

F = Flag start.
The stalls are now mostly placed Centre, in Haydock 5F races.   (Low  shown L).
On good or better going with stalls placed Centre, results are spread across most stalls.
On good or better going, the Top 6 stalls won 14 of 27 races 51%, a very low percentage for 6 stalls.

You will no doubt see advice recommending "High best in sprints, especially on soft going" or words to that effect.
As you can see from the chart above, any bias with stalls positioned Centre has been very marginal during the last 9 years.

On
good/good to soft in places or softer going, with the stalls placed Centre :-
Stalls 1-6 won 11 of 18 races, the Top 6 stalls won 3 races ----  the complete opposite of that advice.
In races of 12 or more runners the Top 6 stalls won 1 in 14 races, but 14 races is a very small sample.

2006 results :- Stalls Centre  2-10, 7-10, 4-12, 5-12, 12-17, 17-17
