Is There Any Barrier Draw Bias in the Canterbury Stakes?

Barrier six has been the most successful by far since 1992 for producing Canterbury Stakes winners with ten horses jumping from that gate.

The three inside barriers have also had a lot of success with 12 winners coming from those draws in the past 30 years.

This race can often attract small fields so there does not appear to be any barrier draw bias in the race.
