Horse racing draw advantage bias results HAYDOCK 6F
Stalls positioned CENTRE.
For High and Low positioning, see 2nd chart below.

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.

This has always been a very weak pattern, even when races were run on the round course.
On good or better going, the Top half of the draw won 30 of 51 races 58%.
That is not a particularly high percentage for up to 12 stalls.
The Top 6 stalls won 29 of 51 races 57%.  Again, nothing spectacular.
Stalls 1 to 6 won 19 of 51 races.
In races of 14 or more runners, stalls 1 to 4 won only 1 of 23 races.
In races of 16 or more runners, there were only 2 wins in 15 races from the Bottom half of the draw.

There are obvious spreads of results in races of 10, 13 to 14, and 20 runners, and there is no clustering of results in a minority of stalls anywhere on the chart.
There is no recommendation.
We can see from the large number of races on wet going, why the cotton industry was centred in Lancashire, where damp conditions favored cotton manufacturing.
On
good, good to soft in places or softer going, the Top 6 stalls won 25 of 39 races 64%.
The Top half of the draw won 27 of 39 races 69%.
2 other winners were drawn dead centre.
On
good, good to soft in places or softer going, in races of 8 to 13 runners, the Top 6 stalls won 22 of 27 races 81%.
Even in that part of the chart, there are wins from Low numbered stalls in races of 8 and 13 runners.
You may choose to follow that trend, but results on that type of going often prove unreliable.
Above 13 runners, wins spread away from the Top 6 stalls.

During 2005, the stalls were positioned High for the first time since Sept 2000.
Not many results here, but a very weak pattern.
On good or better going, stalls 1 to 6 won 7 of 19 races.
The Top 6 stalls won 6 of 19 races.
2 results were dead centre.
There is no clustering of wins in a minority of stalls anywhere on this chart.

On good, good to soft in places or softer going, in races of 8 to 13 runners,  the Top 6 stalls won 9 of 10 races.
With only 10 races, this could easily be coincidence, but there is a good supporting pattern with stalls placed Centre on the top chart.
All 3 races in 2006 were won from the Top 6 stalls.
In races with 15 or more runners, winners are spread across a wide range of stall numbers.
