    There does seem to be a touch of a camber toward the middle of the course at the business end of the race which can slow those on the inside. There are some undulations at the start and in the middle of the course which can affect those going at speed.

    On the left-handed round course over longer distances low numbers have an advantage, being drawn close to the Thirsk inside rail is a real help. Thirsk is a trek for southern trainers, the prize money on offer is not huge so those who travel should be noted, especially if the jockey booking is significant.

  • Thirsk Draw Bias

    If you want the most profitable stall at Thirsk then you need to look at races over 6f and focus on stall 7 as this has produced an LSP of +136.41 over the last five years. When breaking Thirsk down into trips then you can look at which stall and trip combination has produced the worst LSP, that would be stall 9 over a trip of 6f which has, over the last five years produced an LSP of -85.00.

    Here we have the draw bias for Thirsk taken into consideration races with ten or more runners, we will break down the figures by race distance, draws can be much more important over the shorter trips in which runners do not have time to find their position during the race meaning the draw is probably more important than the races over longer distances.

    • Sprints (5f to 7½f)
    • Mile (1m to 1m1½f)
    • Middle Distance (1m2f to 1m5½f)

    The following table shows a breakdown over a group of trips and shows how each position of the draw does, for example in a twelve runner race would be Low (Stalls 1-4), Mid (Stalls 5-8) and High (Stalls 9-12), the positions will always be lowest stall number to highest.
