Is There A Draw Bias in the George Ryder Stakes?

The George Ryder Stakes tends to draw a smaller-to-medium-sized field each year with fields of around seven to 13 runners in the past decade.

Drawing barriers seven or less look to be more desirable but it is hard to tell if there is a draw bias or not.

Since 1983, only six winners have started from gate eight or wider which may suggest there is a small bias but often it is a case of one of the best horses in the race being successful.
