Splits occur here quite often, as jockeys search for better going towards the far (Low) rail, usually in races of 14 runners or more, but not all those races split.
As a result of fields splitting, some advice may recommend following horses that manage to get to either rail, which may be interpreted as a recommendation for both Low and High stalls, rather than Central stalls.
Some advice may recommend a Low advantage on soft going.
On good or better going, results in these races prove that despite splitting, the Top 6 stalls have been favoured more than all the other stalls put together.
Low numbered stalls have not dominated in races on going described as
good/good to soft in places, or softer.
Stalls 1 to 6 won only 10 of 26 races 38%.

On good or better going the Top 6 stalls won 40 of 61 races 65%.
There appears to be the start of spreads of results in races of 15 and 16 runners.
On good or better going, in races of 15 or more runners, the Top 6 stalls won 18 of 32 races 56 %.
Stalls 1 to 6 won 7 of 32 races.
To make best use of the draw advantage here in 5F and  6F races, we need to concentrate on races that are not likely to split.
If we wait for races with smaller fields, most of those races will not split.
This will enable our well drawn horses in the Top few stalls to take full advantage of the faster ground towards the High rail.

Stalls High.  On good or better going, in races of 8 - 14 runners, 
the Top 6 stalls won 21 of 28 races 75 %.

You can see the effect the splitting of runners is having in larger fields, from those percentages.

On good, good to soft in places or softer going, results are spread across most stalls throughout this chart.

2006 results :- 7-9, 10-11, 8-13, 11-13, 4-14, 7-14, 13-14, 5-20

2005 results :-  6-11, 7-11, 3-12, 10 -14, 14-14 (C), 15-15, 4-17,
                       14-18, 11-20, 17-20
The stalls were placed Centre for the first time on August 8th 2005.
The winner was drawn 14 of 14 runners on good-firm going.
The runners didn't split.
