The race in 2007 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 122%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Lennox Stakes, the over-round has been 115%, which means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £115 which is bet.

From the past 20 if you had followed the winner of the Lennox Stakes next time out then you would have backed a total of 6 winners. Backing all 19 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of +1.15.
