Pontefract Pace Bias Statistics

The graphs below indicate what percentage of horses with a particular running style won over each particular distance.

The three different styles are horses that led, horses which were mid pack, and horses held up at the back.

The Pace Indicator (PI) is a quick representation of the analysis, and indicates the style of running which is most favourable over each particular distance. A PI of 2 would indicate that all winners led. A PI score of 0 would mean that all winners were held up. Obviously the actual figure is always somewhere in between depending on the pace bias which exists.

5 Furlongs
6 Furlongs
1 Mile
1 Mile 2 Furlongs
2 Mile 1 Furlong

A surprising result here. Pontefract probably has the most testing uphill finish in the country, therefore you would think that it would be hard for horses make all and hold on in front, however the stats suggest that it is actually very favourable for front runners. In terms of the individual distances, shown below is how Pontefract ranks :

5 Furlongs 6th out of 31 courses
6 Furlongs 7th out of 29 courses
8 Furlongs 13th out of 30 courses
