Barrier analysis

1100 Metres
This barrier is on a chute in the middle of the racecourse. There is a 300 metres run until a sharp double turn. Therefore having an inside barrier is crucial.

1200 Metres
Similar to the 1100M start, starting on the same chute because of the sharp bend into the straight inside barriers are a big advantage.

1350 Metres
This barrier starts on the course proper with a straight run of about 300 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers have the advantage.

1500 Metres
This barrier is located in a chute off the course proper with a straight run of about 450 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers are preferred but the advantage isn't massive.

1900 Metres
This barrier starts on the course proper with a run of about 350 metres to the bend. Inside barriers have the advantage.

2000 Metres
Similar to the 1900M start, inside barriers have a slight advantage.

2400 Metres
There is a run of about 400 metres to the first turn, and inside barriers are only slightly favoured.
