The top three speed rated are drawn 5/14/15. There has been a definite disadvantage in being drawn higher than stall six in recent years over trips up to one mile due to the left hand bend. Since 1997. there have been 139 five furlong handicaps here. Eleven of those races have had today’s number of fifteen runners, and stall 5 has won three of them. Silvanus is in that stall today unless there are any non runners. Stalls 14 and 15 where the other two qualifiers are berthed, have had one win each. Today’s going complicates things as in the past on soft and heavy going, the high numbers sometimes come up the stand rail to find better ground which, on occasions, I remember has worked. Complicated innit!
