Splits occur here quite often, as jockeys search for better going, often in races with as few as 13 runners, sometimes with 12, and even in a race of 9 runners on May 26th 2004.
Splitting races usually cause spreads of wins from a range of stalls.
The chart shows spreads throughout most of this chart.

On good or better going, the Bottom half, Top half split favours the Bottom half by 45 wins against 38 but any advantage has only been marginal.
O
n good or better going, stalls 1 - 6 won 43 of 86 races 50 %.
That is a very low percentage for 6 stalls.
The Top 6 stalls won 37 races.

A major factor that determines which side of this course rides faster is the going.
As a general rule, the faster the going, the more Low stalls have been favoured,
BUT, as field sizes increase beyond 18 runners, wins spread to higher stalls.

Ripon going analysis  link for a more detailed analysis of the effect of the going in these races.

We see every year draw advantage advice for Ripon sprints, suggesting that middle stalls are at a disadvantage compared to high and low stalls.
Advice such as that is probably based on a theory that split races will favour Low and High stalls, rather than Central stalls.
Looking at the chart, if you were to divide the stalls into thirds, that could only be said to be true in races of more than 20 runners.

On good, good to soft in places or softer going, the Top half of the draw
won 17 of 28 races 60%
The Bottom half won 7 of 28 races.  4 other winners were dead Centre.
On good, good to soft in places or softer going, stalls positioned HIGH, 4 of 5 races were won from the Top half of the draw, with result 9 of 17 dead Centre.
