Is There A Barrier Draw Bias in the Tancred Stakes?

There is definitive proof that the Tancred Stakes does not boast any barrier draw bias with almost a perfect share of winning barriers since the early 1980s.

Looking at the table below, you will see a good spread of winners from different barriers, including four winners from barriers nine and 10 respectively.

This means that there is less emphasis on the starting position of each horse; the speed map itself will be more important as will the expected tempo of the race and of course, the horse’s lead-up form heading into the Tancred Stakes.
