Does the JJ Atkins Have A Barrier Draw Bias?

No, there does not appear to be any barrier draw bias when it comes to the JJ Atkins.

There has been a good spread of winners from different barriers over the past four decades in the race. What is more important than the barrier draw is the form of runners; this is true for pretty much every race where a bias does not exist.

In the JJ Atkins, favoured runners (top 5 in market) have often prevailed in recent time so that is a good starting point to finding the next JJ Atkins winner.
